Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Becker's humanism is unwavering, even when confronting such stereotypes as the rich American philistine or the uncomprehending working man."
‑ , Time Out
"As a whole, the film is somewhat of a failure for Becker, but there are enough fine moments to recommend it."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"The one bright spot is Miss Palmer, who acts with the breezy air of one who looks upon drunken artists as amusements. Maybe that's the way to look at this film."
‑ Bosley Crowther, New York Times
"A hauntingly moving portrait about the last year or so in the life of the early 20th-century painter Modigliani."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"A highly personal effort by one of the idols of the New Wave generation."
‑ Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader
