“Powell and Pressburger are perhaps not seen quite at their best with such realist material. But it is still a lovingly honed, extremely conscientious piece of work.” -Derek Winnert

“The intelligent ideas, the fine noirish photography, the superb acting, the outstanding script, and the stunning visualizations all come together to make things work rather well for this minor Powell and Pressburger; its uncanny storytelling is ever so eloquent.” -Dennis Schwartz
