Critic Reviews for Sunday

All Critics (25) | Top Critics (13)

It's Suchet and Harrow, exploring the wellsprings of loneliness, who provide the real glimmers of grace.

May 11, 2001

Feels more and more like an overly schematic exercise in cinematic hide-and-seek.

April 17, 2001

A deceptively lovely romance, at once plain and magical.

Extraordinarily well-acted by its principals.

January 1, 2000

Nossiter does such an admirable job of enmeshing us and his two principals ... in their strange fairy-tale afternoon.

January 1, 2000

The heart of the film is strong.

Audience Reviews for Sunday

Sunday is all Sundays it moves fast forward,annoying in its expedition of improbabilities.Little gifts and surprises and Nossiter offers us a great '97 diamond.Harrow is superb on this one,Suchet equally poetic.

[font=Century Gothic]"Sunday" starts at dawn as the denizens of a men's shelter in Queens, New York wake up and prepare themselves to face the world, hopefully finding some way to spend their days. One of their number, Oliver(David Suchet), a bespectacled middle-aged man goes for a walk and is accosted by Madeleine(Lisa Harrow), an out of work English actress carrying a half-dead potted plant, who mistakes him for a director she was briefly acquainted with. Oliver goes along with the charade...not having anything better to do.[/font] [font=Century Gothic]"Sunday" is an unpredictable and moving film about people who are lost in the world.(It's not that Oliver could think of no way to spend his day. It's more likely that he does not have the money to do anything rewarding.) However, I do wish Queens had been shown in a better light than it is here... [/font]
