Critic Reviews for The Act of the Heart
Actress Bujold is incontestably a beguiling martyr, alternatingly childlike and womanly. But the force of her radiance is blunted by the conventionality of her role.
There is no grand tragic logic in The Act of the Heart. When I left the theater I simply felt that I'd seen a terrible accident.
While the story is scrappy, leading to a hugely disappointing denouement, the central message is conveyed through some superb acting.
This is a bleak, mundane story which nevertheless stays in the mind, and which ends on a note of high drama.
