Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"An utterly splendid achievement all round."
‑ Trevor Johnston, Time Out
"A fond and tautly handled curio."
‑ Tim Robey, Daily Telegraph
"An elegantly crafted melodrama with exotic and futurist London locations, and echoes of Lang and Hitchcock."
‑ Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
"Stylistically, it's a melting pot of influences, Asquith stirring together Hollywood-style melodrama with a Soviet-esque hymn to London life and a dash of German expressionist shadow."
‑ Simon Kinnear, Total Film
"A sympathetic study of a romantic love triangle between a shop girl, an electrician and a Tube station attendant, it proves that this upper-class socialist was more than just a swish actor's director."
‑ Derek Malcolm, This is London
"A sophisticated romantic drama in which love blossoms - with many complications - far below the surface."
‑ Henry Fitzherbert, Daily Express
"A minor masterpiece."
‑ Philip French, Observer [UK]
"A hokey tale of love and murder and a whimsical time capsule of a not-so-bygone age."
‑ David Jenkins, Little White Lies
"Asquith's subterranean melodrama is a fascinating journey back in time."
‑ David Parkinson, Empire Magazine
