Empire Online gives it 4 out of 5 stars and concludes, "Not one of his best but as the personal favourite of director David Lean's outstanding back catalogue, this is well worth a look." NPR says, "Whatever the film's subtext, Lean intended it to be an affectionate portrait of the city. He became so intoxicated by it that he made it his second home." TCM has some information. Rotten Tomatoes has a critics score of 93%.
