  1. In Prague's rating of the film Forever Amber

    3,5 Amber is a whore except the professional spectrum for low condition women wasn't as broad as Larousse @the time + beauty's bad rap as lack of humility barred her from becoming a copybook parishioner. The film echoes with Angélique, another fictional adventuress from the 17th c. fabricated by Anne & Serge Golon, a novel series I gorged on as a kid mainly to survey the pulp mom tried (in vain) to tuck away from me.

  2. Daniel S.'s rating of the film Forever Amber

    I've always thought that the character of Amber was one of the most beautiful roles ever written for an actress. Amber is altogether a social climber, a lady adventurer, an heroine, an egocentric whore and a woman in love. She's the sunny center of the film and her red hair implacably colors the screen with fire or with bloody crosses painted on the houses of the plague-stricken inhabitants of London. Masterpiece.

  3. Stian Gledje Bekkvik's rating of the film Forever Amber

    This film, as its protagonist, is not sufficiently mindful of the concept of great poverty – and so it is almost impossible to fully appreciate its perfect concept of luxury...

  4. FISCHER's rating of the film Forever Amber

    Drame sentimental sur la vie mouvementée d'une jeune femme qui devient la favorite du roi Charles II auquel Preminger a su insuffler tout son talent et sa personnalité. Tout de même un peu ennuyeux !

  5. Karl J. Kipling's rating of the film Forever Amber

    "America... has always suffered from a certain weakness in historical imagination... which is perhaps why in American films both ancient Romans and astronauts from the year 3000 look and act like boys from Kentucky." - Czesław Miłosz... Something of a high water mark of classic Hollywood vulgarity: those who value "camp" are sure to love it. But I am not among them.

    [Cinémathèque PT #435: 35 mm] (2006)

  7. Howard Fritzson's rating of the film Forever Amber

    This is another of those mediocre films that is intermittently saved by the musical scores. David Raksin wrote magnificent music that lifts whole scenes onto another plane.
