Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Except for heartfelt performances by Sophia Loren and Pete Postlethwaite as her wheelchair-bound husband, Between Strangers is an awful cheat."
‑ Sid Adilman, Toronto Star
"mildly satisfying"
‑ Christopher Null,
"Slick little perfumed soap opera."

‑ Brian Gibson, Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Canada)
"A lyrical film about redemption, forgiveness and hope."
‑ Louis B. Hobson, Jam! Movies
