"Lewin's version of Maugham's novel is intelligent, resonant, and extremely well acted by Herbert Marshall (as the author) and George (All About Eve) Sanders as the painter."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"Visually striking, very literary-minded version of the Maugham novel."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
