  2. FISCHER's rating of the film The Astonished Heart

    Film au charme désuet, incertain et passager... www.cinefiches.com

  3. Will Carnes's rating of the film The Astonished Heart

    Not exactly Coward's best play (and I've never terribly enjoyed his acting either), but worth a watch, as everything he wrote is. BRIEF ENCOUNTER is still his best. When will someone adapt PRIVATE LIVES in a halfway decent manner?

  4. Richmond Hill's rating of the film The Astonished Heart

    A modest exercise in restraint and stoicism in the face of largely buttoned-up emotions. Most of the psychological ramifications are muted, but the playing of Johnson and Leighton remains crisp and nuanced. It lacks the focused charge of the earlier Brief Encounter, but is a decent enough nugget that avoids histrionics and ends on a pleasingly dour and tragic finale.
