Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
A lively, robust look at 50 years in the life of a remarkable Dutch woman, Antonia's Line is equal parts laid-back comedy and perceptive social commentary. The film is built on character development, thanks to the strengths of director Marleen Gorris and her actors, particularly Willeke van Ammelrooy as Antonia. van Ammelrooy is quite convincing as she ages from 30 to 85, and even more convincing is Gorris' complete belief in the values espoused by the film's characters, and her refusal to question the decisions made by Antonia and her descendents. Theirs is an open-minded, independent existence, free of the need for male protectors or male approval. Although many viewers praised the film's feminist slant, others labelled it one-dimensional male-bashing. Antonia's Line does at times come across as a little too self-satisfied, as if Gorris were hesitant to allow her philosophy to suffer the weight of even mild criticism. Even so, the film remains a delightful paean to independent women, and to the power of carving one's own path instead of merely following someone else's.
New York Times
Antonia's Line, which won the Audience Award at the Toronto Film Festival, concludes gracefully. It ends on such a note of peace and well-being that even death, in this context, is appreciated as a miracle. Janet Maslin

    victory of life

    this movie starts and ends with a death but it is a profoundly happy story of life and it's fullness in friends and family - no matter how unorthodox they may be. an understated beauty of a film

    Prepared to be bored

    For those who enjoy tired platitudes and pathetic ironies, this is your movie! By the end, pretty much everybody kills themselves. Apparently, they couldn't take it either.

    Antonia's Line

    A most charming, heartwarming film that shows how important family is - whether they are blood related or not.
