Critic Reviews for A Doll's House

All Critics (1)

The photography is superb (the Norwegian setting makes little difference to either play), and Losey's direction is marred only by an occasional over-insistence in the editing.

Audience Reviews for A Doll's House

½

A wonderful screen adaptation of Henrick Ibsen's play -starring Anthony Hopkins and Claire Bloom.(1973). The rigidity and oppression of Victorian era marriage is superbly demonstrated by the relationship between Torvald and Nora. When a crisis occurs, it sets in motion a chain of events that must culminate in the dissolution of the relationship,as well as the destruction of the roles,illusions and delusions that kept them together for several years. Although Bloom is quite successful in the role-I could'nt help but be bothered by her "looking" too old for the role of the child-like Nora.maybe she was cast for just that reason??? A masterpiece in human relations-great dialogue and Hopkins is,as usual stellar.
