    Utterly incredible. So perfectly judged, beautifully written and well acted. Definitely one of the most sensitive films ever made about a relationship, and perfectly adaptable as an early example of a gay or 'forbidden love' story written as a heterosexual drama. Probably seems twee to a modern audience, but anyone aware of the effects of a conservative society or love should find resonance. 9 years 7 months ago

    Absolutely not overrated. A stunningly beautiful picture with a simple theme on the surface but with a very interesting conception of space and the connections of the two spheres with two contrary concepts of love is simply awesome. Especially in the heartbreaking end, when one of these spheres is about to crumble and both protagonists are becoming totally aware of their situation, this film becomes a masterpiece. 8 years ago
