Critic Reviews for A Tale of Two Cities

All Critics (2) | Fresh (1) | Rotten (1)

  • It sticks laudably close to the story and is well worth seeing but Hollywood's 1935 production with Ronald Colman had more emotional impact.

  • A straightforward adaptation which follows the events of Dickens' crowded narrative with commendable fidelity. The pure excitement of the book is missing, however; and the fault lies mostly with T. E. B. Clarke's reverent but somewhat lifeless script.

    Solid if not captivating version of the classic Dickens story. Dirk Bogarde is charming, humorous and serious by turns and pulls you into the film.
