Rating: 3/4 -- [Antonia's Line] ultimately evolves into a familial epic covering three generations of independent women. It is fine storytelling. Full Review

Rating: 3/4 -- It glides so easily over a multitude of events and characters that we're never jarred; Antonia and Bas make a winning alternative-community grandma and grandpa. Full Review

Antonia's Line perfectly fits the Oscar mold: set in the past, studiously PC, sentimental, multigenerational, and loaded with hollow ruminations on the nature of life, death, and the passage of time. Full Review

Rating: 2.5/4 -- Antonia's Line is enjoyable because it is never preachy. It depicts, with a painterly eye, a pagan world that has not changed since Breughel. Full Review

I didn't much take to this humorless, Oscar-winning 1995 feminist fable. Full Review

It's a broad historical saga of great warmth, but it would have been more convincing if it didn't have "feminist agenda" stamped all over it. Full Review

The movie has the feel and flow of magic realism, and brilliant performances by Willeke van Ammelooy as the Earth Mother Antonia and Els Dottermans as her lesbian daughter are extremely vivid. Full Review
