Nidhanaya is based on a dark tale by G.B. Senanayake and is considered a milestone film that people, even abroad, admire the most, albeit it is atypical of Lester James Peries’ customary family dramas. The story revolves around a psychotic killer yet is an underlying serious political study on the degradation of a class of society. In 1972 this film won the Silver Lion of St Mark at the 33th Venice International Film Festival and was selected as one of the outstanding films of the year, receiving a Diploma at the London Film Festival. It was also voted as the best film of the first 50 years of Sri Lankan cinema.

(fr) wrote: You may not like the director jumping you between different timeline points, but you will sure like the chemistry that arouses between the film's leading star, Hepburn and Finney.
(de) wrote: Strange melodrama from Huston with Brando and Taylor in the leads. Notable for its beautiful camera work and cinematography but unfortunately the story is tedious and pretentious. The actors seem to be over-doing it the whole time. Interesting look at repressed homosexuality, the film probably seemed far more cutting edge at the time it was released in 1967.
