Washington Post
Majewski's film is a captivating exercise that will interest fans of art, not to mention arthouse cinema. But the movie's lasting impression is about more than novelty. It's a portrait of suffering and subjugation that urges viewers to stop what they're doing and take notice of the world around them. Full Review
Dennis Harvey
Neither conventional costume drama nor abstract objet d'art, this visually ravishing, surprisingly beguiling gamble won't fit any standard arthouse niche. Still it could prove the Polish helmer's belated international breakthrough. Full Review

Majewski's film is a dazzling master class in visual composition. Full Review
Joe Williams
St. Louis Post-Dispatch
An art-history lesson and a spiritual exercise disguised as a movie. Full Review
Nick Pinkerton
Village Voice
An extraordinary example of both art-historical interpretation and CGI as passport to unknown lands, The Mill and the Cross, based on a book by Michael Francis Gibson, is a moving-image tribute to the still image, with its ability to "wrestle the senseless moment to the ground." Full Review
