long movie but good

Washington Post
At times, "Princess" resembles a widescreen Hollywood western, with exhilarating Steadicam shots of horsemen galloping across broad plains and corpse-strewn fields. Full Review
David Fear
Time Out New York
The filmmaker provides intellectual rigor to spare, yet precious little narrative focus (you virtually wander into plot strands) and there's a stiffness to the proceedings that neither Wilson's charisma nor Ulliel and Thierry's screen-ready beauty can remedy. Full Review
Elizabeth Weitzman
New York Daily News
The cast and crew render every detail so exquisitely that there's almost too much to take in at once. Repeat viewings will be required. Full Review
Jeannette Catsoulis
Using de Chabannes as the film's conscience and moral fulcrum, Tavernier - just as he did in his 1996 film "Captain Conan" - exposes the shame of a meaningless war and the psychological damage borne by those fighting it. Full Review
Kenneth Turan
Los Angeles Times
Epic and intimate, historical and contemporary, moving and thought-provoking, the impressive The Princess of Montpensier has something for all and sundry but especially for those who like to believe that films can be as boldly intelligent as they are entertaining. Full Review
