Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"How do you assemble a wonderful ensemble and then waste their talents? Here's an example."
‑ Wesley Lovell, Cinema Sight
"Very strong, controversial (for 1958) drama starring Hayworth, Kerr."
‑ Steve Crum,
"The well-made play and once well-thought of film seems to be lifeless when viewed today."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"Drama com excelentes atuações (especialmente de Niven e Kerr), Vidas Separadas possui roteiro enxuto que extrai o máximo de sua galeria de personagens patéticos que buscam a dignidade."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"Terence Rattigan's old-fashioned melodrama is well-acted by the entire ensemble. Surprisingly, it was nominated for Best Picture and garnered Oscars for David Nivel as a Major with fake identity and Wendy Hiller as the reserved hotel manager."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"A touching and absorbing movie that (thankfully) doesn't wrap everything up with a big, dumb, happy ending."
‑ Scott Weinberg, Apollo Guide
