O que se diz lá fora sobre THE WAY BACK, de Peter Weir:
«There is an irony here. The film exhibits an admirable determination to do justice to a real story, but the story's not real.»
Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times.
«It's impossible not to cry at their suffering, but whether you'll feel anything is another story.»
Manohla Dargis, The New York Times.
«This arduous travelogue focuses on the macro (stunning, David Lean-like landscapes) and the micro (countless closeups of blistered flesh) to the virtual exclusion of compelling characters.»
Peter Debruge, Variety.
«It's also filled with scenes of extraordinary survival challenges. But the result is oddly impersonal and undifferentiated.»
Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly.
«Beyond its visual splendors, however, the film achieves searing moral power.»
Stephen Farber, The Hollywood Reporter.
