A man, his wife, and the woman he has fallen deeply in love with experience jealousy and heartbreak while housed together in the same barrack of a World War II-era concentration camp in Oscar-nominated director Michèle Ohayon's (Cowboy del Amor) unflinching look at love in a land ravaged by war. His marriage already failing when he and his wife were assigned to live in a concentration camp, Jack soon found comfort in the arms of new love interest Ina. Though his wife voiced vehement objection to the relationship, Jack continued to communicate with his newfound love in a series of furtively penned love letters. It was through these clandestine correspondences that Jack and Ina were eventually able to gain the strength needed to get through such a dark time, but as the war draws to a close all three survivors are forced to make some difficult, and potentially life-altering, decisions. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Some New Trailer For Steal a Pencil for Me
New Review For Movie Steal a Pencil for MeNot even Hollywood could invent a romance more extraordinary than this one.
Elizabeth Weitzman-New York Daily News
Irrepressibly moving without being sentimental, Steal a Pencil for Me is a testimony to true love.
Kevin Crust-Los Angeles Times
What makes Ms. Ohayon's movie special is its recognition that epic horrors don't erase private dramas.
Matt Zoller Seitz-New York Times
Some may think the Holocaust has nothing new to offer up, but Michele Ohayon says otherwise.
Michèle Ohayon's Steal a Pencil for Me offers a simple human story of dignity, levity and romance -- both unlikely qualities in the chaos and terror of Nazi-era Europe -- and exerts its own special charm.
Filmmaker Michèle Ohayon shapes her portrait of two vibrant old people with a fine hand (especially when it comes to interspersing historical footage), creating a valuable addition to the Cinema of Never Forget.
Lisa Schwarzbaum-Entertainment Weekly
Because the sheer scale of [the Holocaust] is incomprehensible, humanizing it, in a documentary like Steal a Pencil for Me, keeps it vivid.
Duane Dudek-Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
An idiosyncratic, largely anecdotal story with larger reverberations.
Love conquers all, including the Nazi war machine and an angry wife, in Ohayon's new Holocaust documentary.
Ron Wilkinson-Monsters and Critics
No first-person account of life in a Nazi concentration camp could ever be called 'romantic,' but the story of Jack Polak and Ina Soep -- comes close.
Ken Fox-TV Guide's Movie Guide
Ohayan creates a fluid pace, matching the account of the survival with present day footage of the couple lecturing younger generations to raise Holocaust awareness.
Eric Kohn-New York Press
It's a Holocaust story unlike any other, and filmmaker Michele Ohayon treats it with an engaging sensitivity.
Glenn Whipp-Los Angeles Daily News
The filmmaker elegantly documents both the past and the present with a measured yet heartfelt sincerity.
Eric Monder-Film Journal International
A misguided documentary that mistakes cutesy, polished aesthetics for meaningful sentiment.
Rob Humanick-Slant Magazine
The most moving story about love, longevity, infidelity and the Holocaust you may ever hear.
There's incredible feeling behind Steal A Pencil For Me -- enough to sustain two lives throughout unimaginable hardship -- but the film doesn't bring much of it to the surface.
Each moment in 'Steal a Pencil for Me' is a witness to the power of people, the will to live and to love.
Donald J. Levit-ReelTalk Movie Reviews
Extraordinary...a sublime recollection of indefatigable affection and dedication in the face of enormous misery.
