“Minnelli infuses the tale of a young woman’s shattered romantic dreams with a romantic fury; in lieu of a broad social panorama, he delivers a hotly involuted inner crisis that he brings to the screen with a breathtaking range of effects, including vertiginous pans and travelling shots, searing closeups, images in mirrors, and sudden shifts of focus…. his vision of  Bovary in Yonville could have been transplanted to any small American postwar town in the form of a film noir.”
Richard Brody, The New Yorker [Read More]
