WHAT ARE CRITICS SAYING?

90

Wall Street Journal by Joe Morgenstern

A stunning drama that's distinguished by a magnificent performance; the most powerful scenes are those that play, as recollection or confession, on Lena Endre's lovely face.
90

Los Angeles Times by Kevin Thomas

Complex, challenging and richly rewarding, it glows with the kind of wrenchingly selfless portrayals that are the hallmark of the Bergman classics.
90

Film.com by Peter Brunette

It makes us realize, suddenly, and with immense regret, what the rest of contemporary cinema so sorely lacks.
80

The New York Times by Stephen Holden

This attenuated two-and-a-half-hour reflection on marriage, adultery, parenthood and the casualties of sexual warfare unfolds like a brooding autobiographical epilogue to Mr. Bergman's much stormier 1973 masterpiece, "Scenes From a Marriage."
