The Door in the Floor Reviews

Cole Smithey

Complex, candid, and satisfying "The Door In The Floor" beckons back to the socially provocative American films of the late '60s and early '70s. It is an adult drama with characters you sympathize with in spite of their immoral behavior.

Cinema em Cena

A direção de Tod Williams, além de abrir espaço importante para a força das atuações do elenco, destaca-se por não ter medo do silêncio.

an alternately amusing and tragic portrait of post-traumatic eccentricity, focusing on two parents who are unable to get over the loss of their two sons after a car accident.

Laramie Movie Scope

Jeff Bridges is perfect as the dissipated, amoral, wise, foolish writer.

Despite some powerful scenes and Jeff Bridges' performance, as a whole, Door in the Floor is a flawed movie that lacks much shape or rhythm.

rich with rarely seen moral gray areas. The characters may not be likeable, but at least they have actual human depth.

One of the best Irving adaptations, a movie with a sad soul and something to say about that state in us all.

It takes nerve to use dead children as apologists for adult misbehavior, but nerve is something novelist John Irving has never lacked.

"The film, while telling a story dealing with tragedy and its after affects, essentially boils down to a study in humiliation"

...a film both fluid and hermetically sealed, inviting multiple interpretations and yet ultimately reluctant to give up its secrets.
