"At times, it is simply a matter of Miss Loren walking toward and walking away from the camera. In the cosmic view of things, ''Aurora'' is still another forgettable trinket. Sophia Loren, however, is not. That is what it means to be a star."
John J. O'Connor, New York Times, 22 oct 1984
"It's a rare feeling for an actress to be playing with her own son. I only work when I have something in my hands that will represent a step forward in my career. Otherwise, I would prefer to stay home with my children."
"Playing this mercenary mother, Loren is entirely convincing as she manipulates the men who bedded her earlier. Less realistic are the
love scenes in which she entices the putative real father into taking responsibility for his one night of bliss."
Bart Mills, The Post-Standard, 20 oct 1984
