Critic Reviews for Don't Move
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.
Audience Reviews for Don't Move
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.
