Writing for The Spectator in 1935, Graham Greene reviewed the film favorably, describing it as having "a pleasant unpretentious air of truth about it", and suggesting to readers that "once accept the romantic plot and the rest is genuine: a creative career from a professional angle". Green praised the acting of Albert Bassermann and the "charming voice" of Michiko Meini.[2]
