This post-Holocaust presentation was a very disappointing documentary all round.

Certainly director, Philppe Mora could've tried to be a bit more imaginative with this 55-minute production. But he just didn't seem to care too much.

With what was told to the viewer in this over-long documentary, nothing new was brought to the table. And Mora's recollections were not enough to hold one's attention for very long.

For the most part, I'd say that "Three Days In Auschwitz" was an utter waste of everyone's time.

Yes. I certainly do agree that the horrors which regularly occurred at Auschwitz during WW2 were, indeed, undeniably monstrous. It was, literally, inhumanity beyond comprehension.

But, with that said - I seriously think that director, Philippe Mora should have rethought his approach to making this personalized documentary presentation before he completed it.

What was intended to be looked upon as being "Three Days in Auschwitz" ended up seeming more like 3 endless years of a personal reminiscence from an incoherent hell.

This 55-minute production's story could've easily been told in about 15 minutes, tops. And, Eric Clapton's "out-of-sync" twangy-guitar soundtrack did absolutely nothing to liven up this mighty grim reminder one bit.

Awful movie. Terrible "artwork". Boring. Minimal insight. I even felt some exploitation of the holocaust going on for the sake of the writer/director's own benefit.

This "film" is a home movie, unworthy of your time. Mora is the subject, himself, self-aggrandizing throughout with his own childish art and inane chatter. The title is misleading. The film jumps from city to city disjointedly, with very little content, visiting museums, etc. A home movie in another respect, he introduces his mother who is not a survivor of Auschwitz, along with the rest of his family who offer absolutely nothing as they have not a thing to do with Auschwitz. The film is completely amateurish, showing the exact, meaningless footage more than once, and the music, although pleasing, is completely inappropriate to the subject matter, much too care-free/light-hearted, particularly while showing Auschwitz. I was appalled.
