Critic Reviews for Signs & Wonders

All Critics (29) | Top Critics (13)

Rampling, to her credit, helps hold the nuthouse together.

August 15, 2001

Until it devolves into what seems like a quasi-surreal Fatal Attraction ... offers a stark, spooky portrait of family fracture and loss.

August 2, 2001

Has extraordinary depth and insight about the limitations and follies of human beings.

July 30, 2001 | Rating: 3.5/4

For all its ambition and richness of style, Signs & Wonders never shows us what's inside Alec.

As a drama about the ravages of mental illness, the movie works.

June 15, 2001 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Signs and Wonders fails because Mr. Nossiter doesn't bother to define the women as characters; he seems as deluded as Alec.

Audience Reviews for Signs & Wonders

Even though it was critically panned, I can't say that I didn't enjoy this film. There is tremendously good interplay between the leads and heavy good drama.

I like it.As a cult art-house it doesn't fail,trifling and playfully iconoclastic.Greece as a tourist/underground combination.We have a Rambling/Skarsgard clash and to be honest,Katalifos' inspiring performance steals the show.Nossiter moves around like a rat amongst cats' dormitories carrying out his passion for film-making too much I think.
