REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..impressive, unashamedly classical feature debut by TV helmer James Kent..”
by Guy Lodge [Variety]
“..as a film, Testament of Youth glimmers with sadness, but also the apprehension of sadness..”
by Tim Robey [Daily Telegraph]
“..the film shows a dreamy drift towards pathos, which is valid enough as an emotional register. But the passion and rage somehow don't come into focus..”
by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian]
