Intense and compelling, excellent direction by Roman Polanski. Sigourney Weaver and Ben Kingsley are amazing. Never a dull moment, very fast pacing. Fascinating story.

But I watched it and I didn't mind it but could need some work on a few things. Expand

The issue is very real but this movie treatment is too obvious in its plot development and the ending just fades away. Weaver is not convincing, her husband has no spine, they have no chemistry. Kingsley makes it watchable.

Simply awesome: one place only, but... The film is smart and leaded by three amazing actors. The highlight are the numerous dialogues between complicated characters, with every defends his own point of view. And no flashback, no "tadam!"Simply awesome: one place only, but... The film is smart and leaded by three amazing actors. The highlight are the numerous dialogues between complicated characters, with every defends his own point of view. And no flashback, no "tadam!" revelations, the viewer makes his own reflections, and it's the evidence it is a good movie... Expand

Simply one of the best movies done on the aftermath of the South American dictatorships. We should never forget the tyranny of the Catholic Church over the centuries and the legacy it left behind.

Adapté d'une pièce de théâtre, le rythme lent puis hâché s'en ressent quelque peu mais ce huis-clos est l'un des films les plus réussis de Polanski.

Le doute subsiste jusqu'à la fin -une fin inattendue- sur la prétendue culpabilité du bourreau ou sur la folie paranoïaque de la victime. Un sujet terrible et émouvant, habilement traité par le réalisateur et admirablement interprété par Sigourney Weaver et Ben Kingsley. La prestation de Monsieur Kingsley, je m'y attendais, il s'agit d'un acteur hors pair mais celle de Sigourney dans un rôle ô combien difficile, je ne m'y attendais pas vraiment : elle s'avère pourtant à la hauteur des enjeux, quelle grande actrice !
