Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Visually, there's an elegance to "The Door" that feels both a virtue and a limitation."
‑ Michał Oleszczyk, Chicago Sun-Times
"This film is a failure on a catastrophic level."
‑ Josh Forward, Trespass
"Seems like a creative miscalculation by all concerned. The dialogue is clumsy in translation, the great director István Szabó seems to have lost his subtlety and his eye for performance"
‑ Andrew L. Urban, Urban Cinefile
"Only cinemagoers who've enjoyed the cringe-worthy cine-sadism of watching train wrecks like Tommy Wiseau's The Room and Plan 9 from Outer Space could and should embrace this turd."
‑ Blake Howard, 2UE That Movie Show
"An absorbing and complex character drama, but one that's difficult to connect to at times."
‑ Julian Wood, FILMINK (Australia)
"The film has a formality and stilted quality about it that is distancing"
‑ Louise Keller, Urban Cinefile
"Without make up or any adornments, the haggard Helen Mirren cooks, cleans and growls her way through this intimate, well-handled two-hander opposite the equally able Martina Gedeck."
‑ Jim Schembri, 3AW
"There's something quite haunting about the relationship between the two women: in some surprising ways, this is a determinedly unsentimental work."
‑ Philippa Hawker, The Age (Australia)
"Mirren and Gedeck shine but stirring Hungarian drama has its faults."
‑ Don Groves, sbs.com.au
