Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Mr. Polanski treads lightly on the clumsier lines, and sustains tension by creating an elegant, unobtrusive dance with the camera. – Caryn James, New York Times, Feb 19, 2010

Fresh: Polanski keeps the situation ambiguous to provoke questions of guilt and responsibility. – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, Feb 19, 2010

Fresh: Kingsley shrewdly tantalizes the viewer about his identity, and gets to deliver the text's most riveting monologue at the end. The lesser-known Wilson may be the first among equals, impressing strongly as the equivocating husband. – Todd McCarthy, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Rotten: The Polanski touch -- apart from a little suspense here and there -- is limited. – Desson Thomson, Washington Post, Feb 19, 2010

Customer Reviews

Amazing! Highly recommended!

This movie is an in-depth look at a terrifying reality. It is from the victim's perspective and the shows the lasting psychological effects on a woman tortured for political reasons. To me, this is the most compelling drama of all of Sigourney Weaver's roles. She is very believable.
