  1. An elegant, poetic fable of endurance.
  2. 80
    Most of the movie is observant and level-headed, a tip of the hat to ordinary schlubs entangled in vast events, people who would otherwise be background victims in a conventional historical drama.
  3. 68
    As a snapshot of Hungarian history, Glamour's watchability trumps that of "Sunshine" — the droll absurdity of the former leaves a much deeper impression than the latter's bruising moralism.
  4. 40
    Time and space are condensed by means both elegant and crafty, and rarely are any of the characters made to be more--or less--than allegorical.
  5. 20
    Major characters drop in and out of sight, WWII begins and ends without much fanfare, and full decades pass in the space of a few cuts.
