Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A crowd-pleasing tearjerker."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"Borzage very often captures some potent emotions, almost despite the material."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"A vision of romance forever on the verge of disintegration"

‑ Dan Callahan, Slant Magazine
"Uneven but interesting look at four friends' problems over the years in Germany."
‑ Michael E. Grost, Classic Film and Television
