Critics reviews

Some of them have expressed so much antipathy for the picture that I went to the first screening at Webster Place last weekend expecting the worst. I emerged with some misgivings, but still I was deeply moved, and in a way that none of what I’d heard and read had led me to expect. Yes, the picture is flawed, but it is still something unusual in contemporary movies, a work that deserves to be called honorable, and not only in its intentions.
