Critic Reviews for Strangers When We Meet

All Critics (5)

Illicit passion around the suburban barbecue pits is the tattered theme in this romantic drama.

The bloated running time is exacerbated by a focus on pointless subplots...

Audience Reviews for Strangers When We Meet

I found this drama to be quite dull. The majority of it is spent with the actors sitting around talking, smoking, drinking, and talking some more. It has all the usual plot devices of an affair drama, no surprises or anything. It's not bad, though. I wouldn't say this movie was worse than any other movies like it. It's just not good either.

Kim Novak, at the height of her beauty, gives a fine performance full of submerged insecurity. She's fragile and bruised longing to be loved. She was always a spotty actress but when the material suited her she could really deliver. The rest of the cast is fine but overshadowed by her. Nice art design and beautiful color photography.
