The Skinny

It's a deeply personal picture that's overflowing with exuberance and passion and is the director's best work in over twenty years.

A dazzling stylistic exercise, Francis Ford Coppola's Tetro pays tribute to great bygone European filmmakers.

Boston Phoenix

Shot mostly in a chiaroscuro black and white, with color interludes for the flashbacks and for surreal ballet sequences in the mode of Michael Powell's The Red Shoes, Tetro rewards the eye.

Unabashedly theatrical and richly cinematic, even when it's falling apart...

Funny, haunting, strange and striking in equal measure, Tetro is a triumph that reconfirms Francis Ford Coppola's position as one of the great American filmmakers...

Austin Chronicle

There is not enough dramatic tension to sustain the film for two hours and conjectures about the Coppola family saga are really extraneous to the experience of Tetro.

Incidents take a back seat to the main event, which is Francis Ford Coppola swooshing ideas and feelings about fathers, sons, blood ties and artistic accomplishment around in a big wine glass.

Shadows on the Wall

Stylish, involving and intensely personal, the film really gets under the skin with its emotional story and powerfully visual tone.

Uncut Magazine [UK]

Coppola may be working on, for him, a smallish budget (reportedly around $15 million) but that doesn't mean his usual craftsmanship has abated. The film is sleekly shot and edited.

Daily Express

Coppola's fascination with family ties and guilty secrets is at the heart of a grandiose but half-baked saga that doffs its cap to the florid theatricality of Powell and Pressburger and Sixties Italian classics such as La Dolce Vita.

The way ahead could be for Coppola père et fils to stay away from personal themes. Family isn't everything.

Ian Freer
Empire Magazine

Frustrating and fitfully compelling, Tetro may not be a return to former glories, but this is Coppola through and through, an over-ambitious effort about thwarted ambition, full of ideas and passion, and smitten with cinema.

It would be kindest to ignore Tetro.

Though it's unlikely to announce his return to the grand stage of big-budget cinema, the movie is graced with touches of the old Coppola magic.

Tetro is a movie filled with splashes of brilliance rather than being a plain brilliant movie.

Coppola is a shadow of the director he used to be. The use of black-and-white here only shows that more starkly.

The black and white cinematography and unusual sound design combining to haunting effect.

Eye for Film

for the most part it marks Coppola once again at the very top of his game - and there are enough nuances, ellipses and ambiguities here to make every return visit reveal something different and new.

Francis Ford Coppola makes a superb return to form with this intriguing and poetic journey into a troubled sibling relationship and the tortured psyche of an artistic genius.

Electric Sheep

Tetro stands as proof that Coppola, with an almost stationary camera and nothing more technical than light on film, can still achieve a more stunning visual experience than the 3D CGI of Avatar.
