[A] hilariously inscrutable exercise in pseudo-profundity.

I find it to be one of his most sublime achievements, filled with a sunny laziness and slow awakening.

A welcome reminder of Bertolucci's directorial assurance.

Liv Tyler is radiant, but the film itself suffers from the same self-indulgence that always hampers Bertolucci's work.

Reeling Reviews

The script is in keeping with the fabric of the film. It's languid and meanders about a bit, but, coupled with the lush and inviting Tuscany countryside, this is not a bad thing at all.

Gorgeous Tuscan scenery and a breakthrough performance by Liv Tyler help make this sudsy flick entertaining.

Palo Alto Weekly

When a party at an elegant villa threatens to become a full-blown musical number, one wonders if Mel Brooks has taken charge of the production.

Minor Bertolucci, but achingly gorgeous.

A lush, coming of age tale that makes you want to take a vacation.

[Bertolucci] builds an homage to beauty around a sullen void.

Stealing Beauty demonstrates that director Bernardo Bertolucci is as adept at intimate drama as he is with epic productions.

In my view, Bernardo Bertolucci is one of the world's most overrated high profile filmmakers.

You can keep Liv Tyler as an actress altogether as far as I'm concerned.
