Critics reviews

The turnaround is pure cornball, but the real-world circumstances that make it possible are truly haunting. This period piece has finally been revealed as propaganda, and it throws all that came before into an entirely new light, making Fanny and Job’s maddening anti-romance into a very long preamble to one of Hollywood’s angriest, and most revealing wartime narratives.
