      Clyde Gilmour Maclean's Magazine A British film, earnest and occasionally attractive but more often merely dull and muddled... Dec 2, 2019 Full Review MFB Critics Monthly Film Bulletin The film retains a certain theatrical artificiality, notably in the last scenes, and the insistence on action has itself resulted in a scrappy organisation of the material and in a dissipation and lack of force in the presentation of the central theme.
