Jay Cocks TIME Magazine The movie is one of those carefully jumbled jigsaw puzzles and comes complete with a rushed, not totally satisfactory explanation at the end. Mar 18, 2020 Full Review Tom Milne Time Out The tortuous mystifications and ponderings (shakily shored up by the revelation that she sometimes suffers bouts of amnesia) wear out their welcome long before the final gush of explanations. Mar 18, 2020 Full Review Roger Greenspun New York Times Samantha Eggar is so fine that she is in herself sufficient justification for the movie. Mar 18, 2020 Full Review Tony Mastroianni Cleveland Press Mystery-starved audiences may find some of this diverting, about the first half of it anyway. But the movie achieves a sort of plateau and never moves from it. Mar 18, 2020 Full Review Christopher Hudson The Spectator In attempting to ingratiate itself with everyone, the film manages to appeal to nobody. Mar 17, 2020 Full Review Dilys Powell Sunday Times (UK) I say a thriller; but the mystifications crawl along, only to crawl back over the ground in an equally sluggish interpretation.
