Critic Reviews for Madame Rosa

All Critics (5)

This melodrama, which won Foreign Language Oscar, about an aging prostitute taking care of children, is mediocre, but Simone Signoret gives a dominant, utterly compelling performance.

Signoret is absolutely wonderful.

Mawkish as hell, but Signoret redeems much of it.

A fine film celebrating the beauty of the human spirit.
