All Critics (2)

Sentimentalizes the peasants to the point where we're left looking too much at peasant culture as if this were a travelogue.

Audience Reviews for Cristo si è Fermato a Eboli (Christ Stopped at Eboli)

½

This film is a well done adaptation of Levi's book, but much of what was felt and experienced had to be summarized in dialogue. Reading the book is vastly more emotional and enlightening, worthy of the highest rating.

great movie and book. I liked it very much and how they portrait the southern Italian as uneducated and very superstitious....

This sounds to me, like this is the kinda movies where "Jesus Christ" goes to 'Africa' to stop the Eboli Virus, doesn't that sound awful stupid to you?
