Critic Reviews for Perceval

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (4)

A conservative director's entry into new territory is a priori fascinating; observing him gradually painting himself into a corner of that territory is less so.

The film marries medieval passion with modern perspective and sires its own special magic.

June 24, 2006 | Full Review…

The spirit of medieval drama lives in Rohmer's utterly unique, flagrantly theatrical adaptation… will enchant medieval enthusiasts and bewilder others.

Eric Rohmer's least typical and least popular film also happens to be his best...

January 1, 2000

The naïve Perceval's odyssey is depicted as a moral investigation, but is shot with a deft touch exhibiting great humor, wit and style.

Ultimately Rohmer's film is an intimate moral investigation, shot with an assured lightness of touch typical of the director.
