The good news is that the screenwriters have stayed very close to the book and the bad news is that the filmmakers have cast the leads so poorly we don't give a damn. Full Review
Los Angeles Free Press
Rating: 5/10 -- This silly, nearly three-hour soaper comes close to attaining 'so bad it's good' status.
The film is disappointing from all points of view. [Full Review in Spanish] Full Review

Rating: 2/4 -- Hampered by colorless characterizations. Full Review
During the turbulent years prior to the outbreak of the Second World War, a young French girl travels all over the world, involving herself in one sordid affair after another. Based on Sidney Sheldon's gratuitous novel. Academy Award Nominations: Best Costume Design.
Based on Sidney Sheldon's bestseller, "The Other Side of Midnight" is the story of Noelle, a naïve young French woman who falls for a handsome American aviator during World War II. But when the war ends, Noelle waits in vain for her handsome flyer to return. Alone and abandoned, the young woman finds that she has to make her way by selling her body. Fortune is kind to Noelle, however, and she quickly discovers that she can make her sex appeal pay off_and sleeps her way into movie stardom. All this time she keeps tabs on her prodigal aviator, who had returned to the US following the war, and started a family. Several years later, when his career goes bust, Noelle, now wife of a Greek mogul, arranges to hire her former lover as her private, pilot in order to taunt him. Not recognizing his wealthy boss as the fragile young mistress he knew during the war, he is bewildered by Noelle's ill treatment of him. But as time passes Noelle finds that this game of deception leads them both into very deadly territory.
