Critic Reviews

  1. Aside from isolated flares of unchecked emotion ...Bouquet's Lucie is too far removed from our ken of romance and overriding purpose, or from Berri's for that matter, to be embraced entirely.
  2. Handsomely photographed and acted...defiantly old-fashioned testament to the power of love.
  3. 50
    Berri's film lacks both suspense and a heroine who actually breaks a sweat while hurling herself in the path of one of the 20th century's most merciless juggernauts.
  4. 50
    This extraordinary story still sparks controversy in France, but in Berri's hands, it never comes alive...a shadow play of historical icons, rather than a portrait of people in love.
  5. Reviewed by: Jay Carr
    Seems so preoccupied with genuflection that it never achieves its subject's heart-pounding immediacy.
  6. Manages to take great characters and a great plot and leach them of all blood, terror, and excitement.
  7. 40
    The adherence to specific facts and actual events hampers the film, as it often does biographical movies.
