Exceptionally powerful.
(Variety)
Alexander's performance makes the film possible to watch without unbearable heartbreak, because she is brave and decent in the face of horror. And the last scene, in which she expresses such small optimism as is still possible, is one of the most powerful movie scenes I've ever seen.
(Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times)
After thirty years of learning to live with the Bomb, we still lack ways of conceiving the Unthinkable.
(Sheila Johnston, Monthly Film Bulletin)
Gentle, loving, noble, angry and heartrending.
(John Gill, Time Out)
Chilling and credible.
(Simon Rose, Essential Film Guide, 1993)
