Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A movie that looks like a muddy second-generation Xerox and contains all the emotional and intellectual appeal of cold tea and soggy toast."
‑ Manohla Dargis, Los Angeles Times
"A flinty-eyed portrait of romantic na´vetÚ and predatory narcissism that would likely have continued to gather dust in the archives if not for its retroactive star power."
‑ Mike D'Angelo, Time Out New York
"The spectacle of two such ferocious actors going at it in the context of a complex, thoughtful drama makes this one worth going down for."
‑ Michael Tunison, Boxoffice Magazine
"There's something haunting about the airlessness and lethargy of this tucked-away corner of the world."
‑ Ella Taylor, L.A. Weekly
"The story is a muted melodrama made strange and haunting by the manner of its telling."
‑ A.O. Scott, New York Times
"The screenplay is so very Pinter as to be positively painful."
‑ David Noh, Film Journal International
"The fragmented storytelling is, well, vintage Pinter, but Ms. Dench and Mr. Irons remain mesmerizing after all this time."
‑ Andrew Sarris, New York Observer
"An atmospheric and subtly engrossing relationship saga."
‑ Megan Turner, New York Post
"A rare treat -- catch it while you can."
‑ Ken Fox, TV Guide's Movie Guide
