Critic Reviews for The Adversary

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (2) | Fresh (6)

  • The Adversary moves so quietly, with such seeming politeness to jaded film senses, that it takes a while to realize that for all its somberness it's a particularly moving comedy.

    October 24, 2007 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Ray's incredible warmth and superbly understated visual style can charm even those (like me) who don't find his films particularly compelling.

  • Beautifully observed political film of disenfranchisement.

    February 18, 2011 | Rating: A- | Full Review…
  • An often powerful story from Satyajit Ray.

    August 29, 2006 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Once you get to grips with the frustration and determination of the film's hero, the points Ray is making about society become increasingly accessible. It's a major piece of work.

  • India's finest director clearly relates to his protagonist: a thinking man well aware of his political surroundings, but never to the point of sacrificing his artistic vision.
