‘The grandeur of this movie is off the charts. For a certain kind of old-school film fan, someone who believes in shapely, classical proportions and an epic yarn told over time, it will be the revelation of the year.’ ★★★★★ Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out
‘A film as transporting, profound and staggering in its emotional power as anything I've seen in the cinema in years.’ ★★★★★ Robbie Collin, The Telegraph
