Rampling, to her credit, helps hold the nuthouse together.

Village Voice
Top Critic

Until it devolves into what seems like a quasi-surreal Fatal Attraction ... offers a stark, spooky portrait of family fracture and loss.

August 2, 2001
Philadelphia Inquirer
Top Critic

Has extraordinary depth and insight about the limitations and follies of human beings.

Boston Globe
Top Critic

For all its ambition and richness of style, Signs & Wonders never shows us what's inside Alec.

Danger: when your suspense film ends and you don't care who really did "it", whatever "it" is, you might want to rethink the plot.

Underrated ...

March 27, 2005
Arkansas Democrat-Gazette

Abtruse, delicately constructed and thoughtful... an arty Euro-flick with an almost entirely emotional mystery and pay-off.

Entertainment Today

Feels like a film that could have been shot by Nicolas Roeg.

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

While it loses its balance deliberating between a political message about American values, a mystery of chance and a steamy love triangle, Signs & Wonders makes for compulsive viewing.

Flipside Movie Emporium

There's a potentially good film struggling to get out of an overly self-conscious director's grip here.

Film Journal International

Signs takes us into Alec's confused head, and, although it can be disturbing there, it's never dull.

St. Paul Pioneer Press

I hate to drag out that word again, but it's seriously needed here: pretentious.

July 6, 2001
San Francisco Examiner

A textbook example of a pretentious art film.

You're beginning to understand why Unger seems to be in such a daze: she's read the script.

Audience Reviews for Signs & Wonders

Even though it was critically panned, I can't say that I didn't enjoy this film. There is tremendously good interplay between the leads and heavy good drama.

I like it.As a cult art-house it doesn't fail,trifling and playfully iconoclastic.Greece as a tourist/underground combination.We have a Rambling/Skarsgard clash and to be honest,Katalifos' inspiring performance steals the show.Nossiter moves around like a rat amongst cats' dormitories carrying out his passion for film-making too much I think.
