The episodes in this second part go on endlessly, loosely, obviously. They lack the revelations of the winter scenes and they do little but belabor at length the points already made. They wreck the film's balance and make its achievements dull.

Reflects a decline in dramatic power and a doting, futile taste in sentimental hero-worship.

Beautifully photographed but far too isolated in its characterizations.
