  1. Has an intoxicating, old-fashioned feel about it. We are instantly lost in the period, thanks to cinematographer Dion Beebe's almost haloed images and Joseph Bennett's authentic, restrained production design.

    Displays so much promise with its beautiful cinematography and superb portrayal by Cate Blanchett that you scarcely notice (or even care) that the story is a bit thin.
  3. This is a movie that, for all its often high intelligence and skill, seems emotionally underdone, bogged down in tony literary and cinematic cliches.
  4. 50
    The narrative is unexpectedly sleepy, excepting the occasional flashy set piece.
  5. 50
    Blanchett, Crudup and Gambon stand above and somehow apart from the absurdities of the screenplay.
  6. Reviewed by: Todd McCarthy

    A bland and dour screen version of Sebastian Faulks' highly engrossing bestseller.
  7. 20
    Director Gillian Armstrong turns Sebastian Faulks' pungent novel about World War II into a soporific.
