72 min

After the death of her crane-driving husband in Germany in the 1930s, Ella must find some way to earn a living. Donning her husband's clothes, she takes up his old profession. Taken for a man, she is completely enthralled by the way men behave when away from women, particularly the rough, working-class men she is impersonating. She keeps the disguise, serves as a (male) soldier during the war, and works on a farm and in a factory afterwards - all the like as a man. Man to Man may or may not be great cinema, depending upon an individual's willingness to denigrate or celebrate its flaws and assets, but Swinton's performance is a marvelous achievement. (Craig Butler)
