Critic Reviews for So Ends Our Night

All Critics (3)

This is a movie that attempts, with nobility and honesty, to portray onscreen the agonizing problem of European refugees. [Full Review in Spanish]

September 17, 2019 | Full Review…

Though containing a number of lighter scenes and blessed with a strong sense of humanity (a Cromwell trademark), the film pulls no punches and is all the stronger for it.

January 13, 2009 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

A mess of melodramatic puffery that ultimately trivializes the tragedy it wants to spotlight.

Audience Reviews for So Ends Our Night

Mournful war drama with a strong cast, several of whom are underused. Glenn Ford is impossibly young and gives a good if callow account of himself but it is Margaret Sullavan with her beautiful bruised diginity that wins the acting honors here. March and Dee really are in support even though they are top billed.
