"After the Rehearsal" evolves into such a fascinating, convincing reflection of backstage psychology and emotional combat that it should prove irresistible to anyone susceptible to the lore of the theater.

Rarely, in fact, has a film succeeded so well in projecting the kinds of interior states usually conceded to novels, but forfeited by films.
