Weber films this pain-seared drama with a meticulous eye for the telling detail-worn-out shoes, torn carpet, tatty furniture-and for the nuances of social observation and concealments on which pride and shame depend.

This superb movie helps restore [Weber's] reputation.

Vivid look at income inequality and ordinary people struggling to get by, in a society where only the rich make a decent living.

Connected with the mostly middle-class audience who identified with the heroine.

Audience Reviews for The Blot

The romance here is quite average for a movie like this. The actors are average too, no one really stood out for me. Overall an okay movie, not bad but not good either.
