  • As small-scale as Boxing Day is, it sustains an unusual atmosphere and an emotional charge of which Tolstoy might have approved - and both performances are memorably etched into it.

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

  • [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.
