Emanuel Levy

A tedious, vastly disappointing film that does not do justice to the wonderful and touching book upon which it is based.

Sometimes humorous and wholly inspiring tale.

I enjoyed the relentless gloomy realism, the refusal to put a happy face on McCourt's miserable childhood.

Misses the mark as an exceptional drama yet manages to vividly convey the soul-shattering effects of poverty.

Like bread without yeast, 'Angela's Ashes' minus the author's wit can't rise to meet expectations.

A dreary, ultimately punishing adaptation of Frank McCourt's memoir, where every other scene has somebody either getting sick, puking or dying.

I am pleased to announce that this film is a fine, a beautiful presentation of a painful story.

Alan Parker logra uno de sus mejores trabajos en lo que es un tributo al espíritu humano que ofrece lo mejor de sí en medio de las peores adversidades

a long, exhausting, almost completely humorless chronicle of misery, shame, and hardship

Parker has gotten the dreariness of the material right, but he can't really give us a reason to care about the film's characters.

For all its fidelity to the spirit and, in extended passages, to the letter of McCourt's book, however, Parker's film falls short.

The film is too often trapped in its own reverence and solemnity.

Like a good potato, Angela's Ashes is heavy on the starch and light on the protein.

I'm sure the producers of Angela's Ashes meant well, but they got the wrong guy to direct it.

Angela's Ashes doesn't work as entertainment, and since it doesn't cure anything, it can't qualify as medicine, either.
