One of those tedious movies that thinks the midlife crisis of a dull guy is more interesting than it really is.
| Original Score: 1/4

PenÚlope Cruz proves that she is more than just a pretty face in this overlong melodrama.

There's plenty of style, plenty of ideas, epic delusions of importance, and zero substance.

Cruz is astonishingly determined to make us believe she's a dumpy slag... but frankly, she's more like a comedy sketch character

What could have been a provocative psychological drama is instead a dishonestly romantic exploration of narcissism and exploitation.

Castellitto keeps cranking up the melodrama and l'amour fou, and after a while you realize he has no idea when to stop.

The character of Timoteo is so hypocritically conceived that it's hard to watch the movie to the end.

Though beautifully shot and acted, Don't Move still holds limited appeal.

Two desperate, unlikable people hungry for any thread of compassion - it oozes melodrama and tries to be steamy, but is mostly pathetic.

A perversely compelling collection of ghastly ideas...

Filled with pain, suffering, self-loathing, and brutal ugliness: fun for the whole family.

Although it's certainly intriguing, Don't Move ultimately comes across as a rather perverse vanity piece for the film's star/director and co-writer.

Too rounded-out, parallel-storied, and miscast.

Long on visual affections and unexamined smut but short on insight, the film's view of human behavior is as offensive as it is preposterously simpleminded.

Someday filmmakers will recognize that blackened teeth and bad makeup make beautiful actresses neither ugly nor brave.
