  1. After a somewhat shaky start, the film gradually settles in to become another extraordinarily powerful and explosively acted drama that deftly probes the moral responsibility of an artist in a totalitarian society.
  2. A rarity -- an intelligent and moving drama of ideas that becomes increasingly thrilling as the ideas unfold.
  3. 88
    Proves acutely subtle. But its question of what we forgive art in the face of atrocity and immorality is one for the ages.
