An unmissable rerelease.
The most affecting aspect of the film is its sense of compassion: we're never asked to condemn or condone, merely to understand.
Mitchell's performance is the walk-away highlight of the production, but Anthony Quayle does a solidly reliable job as the husband.
J. Lee Thompson's direction has a few documentary-style cliches about it, but provides a good, empty space, most of the time, for Miss Mitchell's virtuosity to shine in.
The facile ending, with its suggestion of "happy ever after", is in line with the compromising attitude of the film as a whole; and rings entirely false.
[A] stilted, patronising British movie about working-class and lower-middle-class life...
This is both a reminder of British sexual mores in the darker days of the Fifties and one of the first attempts in a genre that was later referred to as kitchen-sink drama.
A film that deserves to be better known and a welcome reminder of what a fine actress the late Yvonne Mitchell was.
It's utterly compelling, both as a historical document and as heartbreakingly plausible drama.
A very worthy rediscovery.
Hard and uncompromising, yet charged with sad fellow-feeling regarding the lies that we tell ourselves and the compromises we make, this is elegant, adult cinema with a fierce emotional punch.
It's relentlessly downbeat and claustrophobic, but Ted Willis' script avoids easy recrimination.
