Audience Reviews for The Return of the Soldier


Beautifully detailed period drama about amnesia and lost love. Beautifully wrought performances by the four leads, one of Julie Christie's best performances with a moment of such luminous vulnerablity it takes your breath away and breaks your heart at the same time.
