Movie Info

Don't Move is the second feature from actor/director Sergio Castellito (Mostly Martha), who wrote the script with his wife, actress/author Margaret Mazzantini from her best-selling novel. Castellito stars as Timoteo, a successful surgeon and permissive father whose teenage daughter, Angela (Elena Perino), has just had a life-threatening motorbike accident. Sitting in the hospital, wondering if his daughter will survive, Timoteo thinks back to a fateful day 15 years earlier when his car broke

You don't like Don't Move, you admire it for daring to be a bit more complex, for caring about characters who are hard to care about and for plowing forward through all manner of ugly business.

Though beautifully shot and acted, Don't Move still holds limited appeal.

It has grand flourishes, bold strokes and a soundtrack that swells with emotional Italian and American rock, but it doesn't go over the edge of sentimentality. It's too hard-edged and its acting is too restrained and fine for that.

Erotic yet lyrical, graphic yet subtle, edgy yet uplifting, disturbing yet reassuring.

Plausibly explores the question of whether a liaison initially based on a carnal assault and fueled by an unquenchable lust has any chance of evolving into a relationship based on intimacy, affection and genuine trust.

Someday filmmakers will recognize that blackened teeth and bad makeup make beautiful actresses neither ugly nor brave.

Don't Move is saved from outright awfulness by the performances of its two leads.

Cruz...can't rescue the film as a whole from its combination of soapoperatic melodrama and pretentious musings on life and love.

Emocionalmente complexo, beneficia-se das belíssimas atuações da dupla principal, falhando apenas na escolha equivocada dos temas musicais e ao exagerar no melodrama.

The gritty performances outweigh the film's outrageous dramatics.

Denton Record Chronicle (TX)

Two desperate, unlikable people hungry for any thread of compassion - it oozes melodrama and tries to be steamy, but is mostly pathetic.

One of those tedious movies that thinks the midlife crisis of a dull guy is more interesting than it really is.

A perversely compelling collection of ghastly ideas...

There's plenty of style, plenty of ideas, epic delusions of importance, and zero substance.

Audience Reviews for Don't Move (Non ti muovere)

It's the second time I've seen it, and it definitely deserves a spot in my Favorite Movie List! Penelope delivers an intense performance that reminded me very strongly of Geena Rowland's performance in A Woman Under the Influence by Cassavetes.
Beautiful drama.

a haunting and passionate film.

An interesting movie. Sometimes a little confusing as Timoteo is remembering the past as his daughter is going through a life and death surgery. We find out he was about to leave his wife for a sultry Italia (Penelope Cruz), but chose to stay with his wife when she became pregnant.

[font=Century Gothic][color=darkorange]"Upside of Anger" starts out with a funeral. Then, it flashes back three years to when Terry Wolfmeyer(Joan Allen) and Denny Davies(Kevin Costner) bond over alcohol - she's drinking vodka; he's drinking beer.(Was Budweiser a sponsor of this movie?) She's angry over having been left by her husband for his Swedish secretary. And this is most of my problem with the movie - it's natural to be angry and bitter after an event like that but all four of her daughters(each daughter has her irrelevant subplot) regard her with disdain but with no sympathy. I understand the need to move on but you have to be patient with the person in question and that's also in short supply. Oh and Davies is a retired ballplayer who is an on air radio personality who refuses to talk about baseball. (Lots of ex-ballplayers make their living this way. And as long as he pays his taxes I have no problem with this.) The main theme of "Upside of Anger" is that it is wrong to live in the past; but the movie clubs it to death and then drops it out of a very high window. Plus, the movie felt very manipulative.[/color][/font]
[font=Century Gothic][color=#ff8c00][/color][/font]
[font=Century Gothic][color=#ff8c00]Kevin Costner was also playing a member of the Detroit Tigers in "For the Love of the Game." As a Detroit Tigers fan, I have to ask: what did we do to deserve this?[/color][/font]
[font=Century Gothic][color=#ff8c00][/color][/font]
[font=Century Gothic][color=green]"Don't Move" starts out with a shot looking down at the scene of an accident through a rainstorm. Teenaged Angela has been severely injured in the accident. Her father Timoteo(Sergio Castellitto) is a surgeon at that same hospital. His daughter's accident brings him to reminisce about the past - namely, his car breaking down on the edge of town on the hottest day of the summer. He goes to use the phone at the home of Italia(Penelope Cruz) and in a drunken rage, rapes her. He returns to again have rough sex with her and gives her money.[/color][/font]

[font=Century Gothic][color=#008000]"Don't Move" is an Italian film that has some fairly high ambitions. The main theme concerns the very idea of forgiveness - can Timoteo be forgiven for what he has done? Or in more general, can men be forgiven for all the evil that they do? I don't think so, even if the film has other class plays a very important role in "Don't Move". Italia is a very poor seasonal worker but Timoteo's wife is quite wealthy. It's inferred that Timoteo is from a middle class background as he walks the line between the two. [/color][/font]
