Watch On
  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. 88
    Proves acutely subtle. But its question of what we forgive art in the face of atrocity and immorality is one for the ages.
  3. A rarity -- an intelligent and moving drama of ideas that becomes increasingly thrilling as the ideas unfold.
