Editorial Reviews

Hollywood Reporter - Barry Garron
Given the length of the film and the curse of unforgiving modern attention spans, [director Andrei] Konchalovsky manages to find a pace that is just right for viewers and for the unfolding of secret strategies and intriguing plot twists.
Boston Herald - Sarah Rodman
Shot on location in Hungary and Slovakia, the 160-minute Lion practically shoots icicles through the screen with its snowy vistas and the chill generated by the gifted ensemble.

    re-make

    If I hadn't seen the original - with Peter O'Toole and Katherine Hepburn - I would have thought this one was decent. Trouble is, there is no way that this production can measure up to the O'Toole/Hepburn standard. Stewart is stalwart but inconvincing in the role of Hentry II; Glenn Close is desperately tryiing to match Hepburn's vituperative ripostes and doesn't measure up. Interesting effort, but it doesn't work.
