Three Thousand Years of Longing | Ratings & Reviews


South China Morning PostSouth China Morning Post

"A consciously unfashionable fantasy about a wary academic and a chatty genie that may leave you wishing for more..."

The GuardianThe Guardian

"A fairy tale with more in common with Babe than Mad Max, this movie reaffirms George Miller as one of the great magicians of cinema working today."

Slash FilmSlash Film

"(A) brain-tickling eyesore..."


"The sense that conventions of myth are being deconstructed is lost from Byatt’s original story, but there is enough flash here to dispel any boredom."

The Irish TimesThe Irish Times

"It's a gentler, sadder movie than the dizzying trailer suggests, and less driven by plot than a stickler for storytelling like Alithea might prefer..."

Entertainment WeeklyEntertainment Weekly

"(It) strains so hard for beguilement and timelessness that it’s ponderous and heavy."

Hollywood ReporterHollywood Reporter

"A curious film, messy in all its ambition but consistently transfixing, an earnest labour of love..."

Vanity FairVanity Fair

"An epic fairy-tale that will make you wish for a better ending."


"Destined to become a cult favourite..."

The TimesThe Times

"A bittersweet modern fairy tale from one of cinema’s most bombastic virtuosos..."

Time OutTime Out

"There will be many people for whom it is love at first sight, and people in whom it provokes a wild allergic reaction."

Little White LiesLittle White Lies

"While Swinton and Elba make smooth work of the fairy-tale-toned dialogue, they simply lack the chemistry to make their tryst convince as romance."

The TelegraphThe Telegraph

"An inventively fanciful and broadly enjoyable palate cleanser before Furiosa rides again."
