Three Movie Buffs

A superb cast lead by Bob Hoskins in the performance of his career.

Nick's Flick Picks

The bracing peaks of image, acting, and narrative architecture handily win the day over a scenario that always feels more like a willfully engineered exercise than a fully plausible reality.

The acting of Bob Hoskins in Jordan's disturbing Odd Couple tale is superb.

Groucho Reviews

As a study of social fašades as a means of social climbing, and as a character study of Hoskins' would-be angel, Mona Lisa excels... [Blu-ray]

No wonder audiences have taken to this gritty romance as to a mongrel puppy; for at heart Mona Lisa is an old-fashioned poor-soul weepie, and George is less a Cagney rakehell than a Chaplin tramp.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

A detailed, thoughtful film that sensitively explores the emotions within its seedy, exploitative milieu.

Sublime acting all round, including a convincingly sinister Michael Caine as the big boss happy to profit from the loss of innocence.

Combustible Celluloid

It's a crime film, and it can be intense and lurid, but it's first and foremost about these characters and Mona Lisa takes its time and gets to know them.

A wonderful achievement, a dark film with a generous heart in the shape of an extraordinarily touching performance from Hoskins.

Lessons of Darkness

The real drama ... stems from each character's frustrated attempt to transcend his or her lousy lot in life.

Hoskin's is engrossing in one of Neil Jordan's best movies.

It's like watching the departure of an ocean liner. After all of the initial excitement, you're left on the dock, alone, wondering what all the fuss was about.

...despite the film's sordid themes, violence, brutality, and bloodshed, one comes away from it feeling that it's really rather a sweet and affecting story.

If you need an interpreter for the Cockney, maybe I'm available. I wouldn't mind seeing the film again.

In an era when movies about love almost always invariably devolve into formulaic affairs, Neil Jordan's Mona Lisa stands out as an often-surprising, multi-layered achievement.

The movie's ending is a little too neat for my taste. But in a movie like this, everything depends on atmosphere and character, and Mona Lisa knows exactly what it is doing.
