A very good, suspenseful film with great acting. Bergman convincingly conveys her increasing confusion and while Boyer overdoes it a bit as the villain, he's still very effective. The ending is great and makes up for some of the middle going on a bit long and stretching believability.

The suspense aspect could've been better if it didn't telegraph some stuff, but enough is left unanswered for the movie to stay intriguing. Charles Boyer plays about the biggest prick you ever saw, and Ingrid Bergman gives a nice performance too, even if she is ridiculously gullible. The last 30 minutes become a wonderful detective style thriller, and a bunch of pieces come together just right.

One of those movies that's a bit frustrating to watch because the bad guy is horribly evil you just can't wait to see him get it. Charles Boyer plays one of the nastiest villains you'll ever see. Ingrid Bergman perhaps overdoes her helplessness, but makes up for it during the exceptionally satisfying ending.

Pretty good. I got a bit fed up during the middle section, which consists mostly of Boyer looking shifty and Bergman being stupidly gullible. I think it would've been more interesting if the film had shown the events from Bergman's character's point of view. I do like the feminist statement the movie makes, and it isn't hard to interpret the whole thing as an allegory for social oppression of women.

Ingrid Bergman plays the most pathetic female character in the history of cinema. Why is this such a classic? Boyer is ridiculous, Cotten and Lansbury do "ok" with their limited screen time, and Dame May Whitty seems to appear and disappear for no good reason. The ending is a big let-down, too.
