December 14, 2001
A tug-at-your-heartstrings weepie from the sledgehammer school of filmmaking.

Impeded by overemphatic camerawork and a meandering POV.

It fails to arouse much more than deep annoyance.
June 6, 2001
Both overly familiar in its themes and uncomfortably close to melodrama.
September 21, 2001

June 1, 2001
Personal views aside, this small, well-crafted Irish production achieves importance by saying what it intends to say with both strength and conviction.
June 21, 2001
Sydney Macartney, whose previous directing experience had been mostly in television, deals freshly with situations that also could have been cliches.

A solid, balanced period piece that focuses on a specific place and time yet resonates with universal themes.
September 7, 2001
The gripping A Love Divided will leave you taking sides, whether or not that was the film's intent.
