Critic Reviews of "The Painted Veil"Time OutApril 20, 2007
The production values are characteristically sumptuous, William Daniels' photography is lustrous, and Boleslawski directs with suitable flair.Entertainment WeeklyJanuary 10, 2007
The always surprising Watts creates a woman at once contemporary and retro. And Norton, as a producer as well as star, concedes enough space for Schreiber and the effortlessly fascinating Jones to earn their own spotlights.Ebert & RoeperJanuary 08, 2007
Sweeping vistas, period-piece sets, impeccable literary source, a little stolid at times, but ultimately quite impressive.New York Magazine/VultureJanuary 06, 2007
The movie makes for a good old-fashioned wide-screen wallow.Miami HeraldJanuary 05, 2007
Exquisitely filmed and finely acted.Chicago TribuneDecember 30, 2006
The acting is quite splendid, especially in the vicinity of the quite splendid Watts.ReelzChannel.comAugust 28, 2008
This stab at grand romance fails to satisfy.Film ThreatJune 21, 2008
Norton's effect and Watts' able portrayal are not enough to move the misogyny of the narrative.Ozus' World Movie ReviewsJune 10, 2008
Contents itself with making the Maugham work less prissy.Sydney Morning HeraldJune 08, 2008
It's a wallow and I confess to wholeheartedly enjoying the plunge.New Zealand HeraldMay 02, 2008
Norton, an American, and Australian Watts are so busy struggling with their accents that they never really find their characters' hearts. But it's a solid piece of period escapism.Urban CinefileApril 18, 2008
Concealed passions are revealed as life takes unexpected turns and what initially seems like an act of vengeance becomes the making of the central characters
