"....Visual elegance that seems to isolate and purify its characters and their troubles....[Moore gives a] sly, delicately shaded performance..."New York Times "...To watch this VANYA is to marvel, as always with Chekhov, at his insights, at how rigorously and effortlessly non-judgmental he is, at how much empathy he has for all his characters..."Los Angeles Times "...This live wire VANYA, freshly observed for the '90s, is fiercely funny, touching and vital..."Rolling Stone "...[Malle] is the master of a visual style suited to tightly-encompassed material. There is not a shot that calls attention to itself, and yet not a shot that is without thought..."Chicago Sun-Times "Malle's last film was a brilliantly filmed reading of Chekhov's 'Uncle Vanya'..."USA Today "...You may feel that you're seeing Chekhov's masterpiece -- really SEEING it -- for the first time..." -- Rating: AEntertainment Weekly "[T]he process on screen is an actors' workshop, but literalness can't describe the hypnotic ease with which the actors assume, then shed, then reinhabit their roles."Wall Street Journal0.2608304
