  • Perhaps no movie version could find an equivalent for the original's final lines, but this is another arresting adaptation from Rose.

  • Proves timely and persuasive: as the weather becomes colder, so a thaw develops between Basil and Nick's more attractive everyman.

  • [Director Bernard] Rose does a wonderful job in putting you in the protagonists' shoes, in what is a pensive, slow-burning production, as the audience are taken on this long and arduous trip.

  • Tolstoy's acutely felt story yields a prosaic film tragedy that may connect with festival audiences but few else.

  • The film unfurls through a series of brilliantly staged and intensely uncomfortable interactions between the supercilious Basil and the grating Nick.

  • It's a nuanced story, cleverly combining claustrophobia and agoraphobia, and the moving climax takes on a sonorous spiritual tone of revelation and redemption.
