We gave it a B+

”The English Patient”’s Ralph Fiennes does triple duty playing three different period roles in this somber saga about a Hungarian family, stretching across five generations — and three hours. The film — by István Szabó (director of the Oscar-winning ”Mephisto”) — has already won Canada’s Genie Award for Best Motion Picture, but U.S. critics who saw the movie at the Toronto Film Festival last year weren’t so impressed.
