Critic Reviews for The Journey

All Critics (3)

Although it takes a rather vague and sentimentalized view of the clash of ideologies involved in the 1956 Hungarian uprising, some excellent acting performances and tightening suspense make this romantic drama well worth seeing.

A glimpse of what might be understanding of the present Soviet mentality and some of that supra-ideological commodity, the Russian charm.

July 19, 2018 | Full Review…

Standard Cold War/romantic triangle story.
