About

"THE GIFT is the most brilliantly original U. S. movie released so far in 1962, a stylistic tour d'esprit that employs a subtle and modern language of cinema to release a mood and distill a moment of great inward sweetness and intensity...

To diminish the impasse of each part of the picture, to force the spectator to see it whole" –Time Magazine
