There is velvety rich cinematography, an evocative score, beautiful period pieces and some captivating performances, but they fail to unite and do justice to the literary source.

One day Blanchett may get a part that melts her virginal ice queen formality, but this isn't the film
Full Review | Original Score: C-

Mature material in this old-fashioned WWII movie.

Um filme emocionante até os minutos finais, quando se entrega lamentavelmente ao romance barato.
| Original Score: 4/5
February 13, 2003
An adaptation that is often confused as to whether it's a love story set in wartime, or a war story with a love angle.

March 1, 2002
Stubbornly generic.
February 8, 2002
Trivializes World War II's darker moments in service to its cheesy romantic triangle.
February 8, 2002
A surprisingly dull movie.
January 28, 2002
Although the director perfunctorily covers all of the standard bases, the movie has few compelling moments, and easy to stage episodes end up feeling needlessly false.

January 28, 2002
Director Gillian Armstrong and writer Jeremy Brock adapt Sebastian Faulks' novel into an overdressed and under-motivated melodrama.

January 25, 2002
If you have a nostalgic side ... there is much to enjoy about filmmaker Gillian Armstrong's cozy, intimate direction here, which conjures up a very specific ambiance.
January 25, 2002
An old-fashioned romantic adventure film strongly acted, ably directed and written with stolid sobriety.
January 25, 2002
The pace is so lethargic and the focus so diffuse that it's hard to get a fix on Charlotte beyond needless glamorization.
January 25, 2002
Mounts a romantic drama of the World War II era in mostly glossy, shallow terms.

If this is melodrama, it's melodrama of a superior rank, and I salute it.
January 25, 2002
While Blanchett's presence is surely felt in virtually every scene of the movie, her acting isn't. We don't connect with her at all.
