"Mr. Strassberger directed intimate moments and crowd scenes with equal skill, making smooth segues from the personal into the political...Aided by skillful lighting, the director created some striking tableaux that looked like Old Master paintings, and his choreographic style with crowds made the final massacre, with cassocked men slitting the throats of women, into a horrific dance of death."
