Audience Reviews for Goodbye Again
This movie is like an older and non-humorous version of The Graduate with actors who were more well known at the time. I think both Bergman and Perkins give good performances. The problem is that the movie is very predictable and a little too long. It's an alright movie, but it could have been a lot better.More
High class soap opera with Ingrid, stylishly dressed and becomingly coiffured, looking wonderful. She of course gives the best performance with Perkins a close second. The main problem is that her longing for Montand, a stolid lout, is puzzling. In a sign of how the times have changed the enchanting beautiful Ingrid, who states that she is forty, considers herself old and seems desperately afraid of being alone and is willing to settle for crumbs from a man whom she is clearly to good for. Still as these sort of pictures go this is a fine diversion. Jessie Royce Landis is fun in a small part as Tony's mother.More
It's a little melodramatic and overly long, but Goodbye Again is still an enjoyable and entertaining romance, thanks largely to a charismatic performance from Anthony Perkins. Perkins, who was fresh off of his big role in Psycho, brings a certain liveliness and joy to the movie that makes it easy to like. Perkins is also accompanied by two other veteran actors, Ingrid Bergman and Yves Montand, who both give good performances as well, but his performance is what really stands out in Goodbye Again and makes it worth seeing.More
