Movie Reviews

Suprisingly affecting movie
Paul S. Remington | Rochester, NY USA | 09/18/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Sofie is a stunning piece of work that portrays the unresolved love a Jewish woman has towards a Christian man, whom she chose not to marry. As the story unfolds, the humanizing elements of Sofie's character become the focalpoint. Empathy towards her struggle to accept the cards life has dealt her is easily accomplished as Liv Ullmann brilliantly and sensitively directs this fabulous work of art. Movies like this are a rare gem in the world of high-budget, glitzy Hollywood action. It is so often forgotten that a solid story line with richly established characters can be more affectatious than a $100 million dollar budget. Five stars+! Don't be intimidated by the subtitles. This drama will touch your heart. I share the sentiments of the previous reviewer... this movie is hauntingly moving and gripping!"
This movie still haunts me
Paul S. Remington | 12/01/1998
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I was unable to get up and walk out of the theatre, or stop sobbing, at the end of this movie. I don't recall ever being so moved by a film. The perfect beauty of the story and the production, as well at the incredible acting, has remained with me since I saw it in 1993. It touched me particularly as a mother, with the grief and pride she displayed while letting her child go. Thank you, Liv Ullman"
