91
A domestic tragedy of lacerating vision.
90
Wall Street Journal
A stunning drama that's distinguished by a magnificent performance; the most powerful scenes are those that play, as recollection or confession, on Lena Endre's lovely face.
90
Complex, challenging and richly rewarding, it glows with the kind of wrenchingly selfless portrayals that are the hallmark of the Bergman classics.

It makes us realize, suddenly, and with immense regret, what the rest of contemporary cinema so sorely lacks.
88
Chicago Sun-Times
Intriguing in the way it dances in and out of the shadow of Bergman's autobiography.
83
Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Ullmann has honed a too-long and sometimes relentless film that delves into the selfishness of passion but also captures the elusiveness and unpredictability of love.
80
This attenuated two-and-a-half-hour reflection on marriage, adultery, parenthood and the casualties of sexual warfare unfolds like a brooding autobiographical epilogue to Mr. Bergman's much stormier 1973 masterpiece, "Scenes From a Marriage."
75
Christian Science Monitor
An intense, claustrophobic drama of love and infidelity.
75
New York Daily News
Hits so hard because it feels so real.
75
Much of the film is so wrenching there's no time for idle thoughts.
