Critic Reviews for Mrs. Soffel
handsomely mounted period piece, but can't shake off a certain air of good manners
didn't for one moment convince me that these were real people, acting from the bottom of their hearts.
a very strange and maddening movie, being a fascinating tale that's nowhere as provocative as it first promises to be and as the reputations of everyone connected with it might lead you to expect.
An unusual love story and a religious film about grace and forgiveness.
The outcome is predictable, and the prospectively livelier second half never breaks free from the torpor of the prison scenes.
