  • If you want to know what the ultimately synthetic box-office film would look like, then try this weepie.

  • The pathos of little children caught in the agony of war is always a solid staple of sentiment on the screen. It has been well and touchingly presented in any number of films. And it is offered again with deep compassion in "Conspiracy of Hearts" ...

  • It's the sort of film where in a crisis nuns roll their eyes skywards and slowly murmur, with clasped hands, things like : 'Sweet Jesus, have mercy.'

  • Among the cast, the kids are the scene-stealers, and it is to Syms' credit that she is able to hold her own with them on several occasions.

  • A sincere and involving celebration of the human heart that manages to sell its moving story without relying on mere sentimentality.

  • Thoughtful casting lends the film resonance, and it's far better than its potentially mawkish plot combination of children and nuns would suggest.
