Brilliant! Excellent!
2 February 2009 | by (India) – See all my reviews

The Human Voice can probably be counted as Ingrid Bergman's best dramatic performance along with Autumn Sonata. The excellence of her performance cannot be very well expressed in words - it's better experienced. It is only possible for an actress of her calibre to portray varying emotions like utter frustration to immense love to sheer anger and all that at times within a single sentence!

As rightly put in another comment, facts like it being a play with only a single actor or that the same backdrop is used throughout does not matter, because Ingrid never lets your attention waver. She mesmerizes one & all with sheer brilliance.

Absolute recommended!
