Audience Reviews for The Return of the Soldier

  • Apr 21, 2008
    Beautifully detailed period drama about amnesia and lost love. Beautifully wrought performances by the four leads, one of Julie Christie's best performances with a moment of such luminous vulnerablity it takes your breath away and breaks your heart at the same time.
