It is regrettable that the story of [the film] isn't nearly up to its incidentals .. [its] dilemma perhaps more suitable for a half-hour Lassie episode.

(Roger Angell, New Yorker)

For all Zinnemann's generous attention to character, the hints of longing, despair and indomitable spirit, the overall impression remains of sheer length and repetition and synthetic naturalism.

(Richard Winnington, News Chronicle)
