  1. Densely layered, demanding and beautiful, Ruiz has found the perfect venue for his passions and created the most cinematically breathtaking film of the new millennium.
  2. Ruiz has made the most ambitious adaptation of a Proust work yet.
  3. A mesmerizing, shimmering and amazingly successful adaptation of Time Regained.
  4. Reviewed by: Ken Fox

    Resembles an Impressionist masterpiece come to life, and ends with a tremendously moving acceptance of art and mortality.
  5. A long sit for those unfamiliar with Proust's literary quest and output, but the view is sensational.
  6. Reviewed by: Janet Maslin

    Struggles under the burden of adapting such rarefied material.
  7. Despite its actors, its lush photography and its obvious seriousness of purpose, is as close to a form of torture as any film ever devised. I can't think of any individuals I dislike so much as to force them to see this picture.
