REVIEWS:





"The Bridge On The River Kwai took more than a full year to film and edit,
finally making its debut in movie theaters on December 18, 1957. But
that year spent in the Asian jungle was definitely worth it. Because
what resulted from that strenuous year of sweat and gritty
filmmaking was a true cinematic masterwork."

-- David Von Pein; January 2006







"[An] exceptional film production. .... A towering entertainment. ....
Brilliant is the word, and no other, to describe the quality of skills
that have gone into the making of this picture. .... A film we guarantee
you'll not forget. .... David Lean has directed it so smartly and so
sensitively for image and effect that its two hours and forty-one
minutes seem no more than a swift, absorbing hour."

-- Excerpt from The New York Times; December 19, 1957
