  1. FISCHER's rating of the film The War Is Over

    Sujet important et grave qui évite les écueils du militantisme pesant et du mélodrame facile, et mêle avec brio et force, passé, présent et avenir, le tout ponctué par une voix off riche et profonde. Une réussite parfaite et sérieuse signée Alain Resnais... www.cinefiches.com

  3. Alex's rating of the film The War Is Over

  4. Dalibor's rating of the film The War Is Over

    Resnais goes mainstream - and it works! The psychological deconstruction of a main character, an insight on french communist underground, classical thriller tension, with a spice of his famous storytelling by editing.

  5. Jesse Furgurson's rating of the film The War Is Over

    More plotty and linear than what came before, but not without vertiginous and disorienting moments. And it has one of the best sex scenes in cinema.

  6. T. J. Harman's rating of the film The War Is Over

    Underrated Resnais film. At times, it almost feels like a straight espionage thriller (Montand's character has an almost Bond-like way with the ladies) but then an expressionistic sequence will remind you who's directing this film. The cast is uniformly amazing.

  7. Francisco R.'s rating of the film The War Is Over

    One of the classiest, sexiest and most intelligent variations of the noir tradition I've seen in my life. Resnais is above all a poet and a thinker.

  8. ramosbarajas's rating of the film The War Is Over

    The film is filled with interesting editing, small cutaways that are so distinctive and bring to mind the French New Wave... The beginning is confusing, especially because there is a lot of dialogue. But once the initial confusion is gone, there are beautiful shots and interesting angles. Thulin and Bujold give amazing performances and the film's best scenes are with them.

  9. Patricia's rating of the film The War Is Over

    I found it very intimate, the shots. It had to be Resnais or else this picture would have been like many other political structured films of its time. It is just completely on the verge of boredom with this type of material to work with, but because this picutre was made from Resnais it's not, you're not put off from watching this picture because of the way it was filmed. I found it to be well made and a good picture
