The film is finally only an enjoyable tour, almost devoid of the book's resonances.

Sometimes the scenery is breathtaking, but more often the narration lends the landscape an interest it wouldn't otherwise have.

Slant Magazine

A wide-ranging piece of literary criticism brought to vivid cinematic life, bursting with ideas and inspired visual translations of them.

As Jonathan Pryce reads passages and academic voices take turns to chew over Sebald's visionary opus, B&W footage of country roadsides and wind-blasted coastlines turns rural Suffolk into something truly otherworldly.

Grant Gee's documentary is very winning.

Retraces Sebald's steps, reuniting the novel's descriptions of actual places and spaces with their images and weaving in illuminating commentary from admirers (Rick Moody, Robert McFarlane).

If you haven't read the book, you'll want to. If you have read the book, you'll want to read it again.

Curious souls new to this writer will discover a useful introduction (including passages from "The Rings of Saturn," read by the actor Jonathan Pryce) and a handy map.

This deconstructive pic never wields Sebald's subversive power but follows evocatively in his wake.

A fresh, strange, downbeat new entry to the "nonfiction art film" genre.

Grant Gee's film should make anyone want to read The Rings of Saturn and the rest of Sebald's relatively small but exquisite oeuvre, some eight or nine books in all.

With so many films adapted from novels, it's nice to see cinema paying homage to unheralded greats of literature like Sebald.

Xan Brooks

In keeping with the spirit of Sebald's writing, Gee's film is teasing, elegant and perhaps inevitably unresolved: an invitation as opposed to a destination.

In a way, Patience is a lot like how one of its interview subjects describes an attempt to do Sebald's walk: He says he could retrace the steps, but not the experiences, or the revelations.

A visionary composition on a series of spoken reflections about a literary work - itself full of layered free-association - Gee's intricate, prismatic film might sound as if it must be buried in abstraction.
