Critic Reviews for Four Nights of a Dreamer

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (3) | Fresh (8) | Rotten (1)

  • In the secular turn Bresson reveals an unexpected sense of humor and worldly irony.

    April 8, 2006 | Full Review…
  • Time and again, it is shockingly beautiful, and I can think of nothing in recent films so ravishing as his strange romantic vision of the city, the river, the softly lighted tourist boats in the night.

    April 8, 2006 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…
  • The film is rescued from occasional moments of pretension by the gentle eroticism and absolute conviction with which it is made.

    April 8, 2006 | Full Review…
  • Where [Dostoevsky] reveals and analyses intensity of perception, Bresson merely suggests it. The parable shrinks into an anecdote, and a pretty boring one at that.

    August 3, 2015 | Full Review…
  • It's an affectionate tribute to the beauty of Parisian youth with a keen eye for the friction caused when whimsical idealism meets the messy demands of interpersonal reality.

    March 5, 2013
  • Gone is the blistering, fatalistic Catholicism for which Bresson is famous, to be replaced with an unusual sort of humanism that is cynical but quirky, detached but sincere.

    February 5, 2012 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

    Bresson's overlooked adaptation of Dostoyevsky's White Nights, A bit more accessible than his other works that I've seen, Has some interesting moments but overall I have mixed feelings, It may a need a rewatch
