Critics reviews

Sunday has plenty of fine things to say about the everyday routines in and around a men’s homeless shelter, and even more about an impromptu one-day affair between two touching middle-aged washouts… Part of this triumph of meaning over style is surely Sunday‘s point, but it also suggests that Nossiter is capable of making only half a terrific movie. It’s a half worth keeping.
