Though well acted, especially by Ingrid Bergman, as the woman in love with the suave Yves Montand and the boyish Anthony Perkins, the melodrama has not aged well.

Audience Reviews for Goodbye Again

This high class sixties soap opera shows off the talents of Ingrid Bergman Yves Montand and Anthony Hopkins, with its air of sophistication and intriguing style. The story is rather bland, but it's enough to allow the performances and the great black and white visuals to carry the film. Hopkins awkwardness fits in perfectly here, since he plays the younger fling of Bergman versus the older sophistication of Montand. Perfect for a rainy Sunday afternoon. 3 out of 5 stars

It's a little melodramatic and overly long, but Goodbye Again is still an enjoyable and entertaining romance, thanks largely to a charismatic performance from Anthony Perkins. Perkins, who was fresh off of his big role in Psycho, brings a certain liveliness and joy to the movie that makes it easy to like. Perkins is also accompanied by two other veteran actors, Ingrid Bergman and Yves Montand, who both give good performances as well, but his performance is what really stands out in Goodbye Again and makes it worth seeing.

This movie is like an older and non-humorous version of The Graduate with actors who were more well known at the time. I think both Bergman and Perkins give good performances. The problem is that the movie is very predictable and a little too long. It's an alright movie, but it could have been a lot better.
