Don't Move Reviews

June 3, 2005
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.

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.

This is a very watchable movie, but in the end it's like realizing you've spent a couple of hours in the company of an outwardly civilized jerk.

It's behind the camera where Castellitto does his best work. He immediately pulls you into the story and when it's over you don't want to move.

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

Castellitto must have been aiming for a story of redemption here. All he achieves is melodrama.

We just don't learn enough to compensate for feeling so little.

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

March 18, 2005
A full-bodied, all-stops-out love story with a wrenching impact that makes most of today's screen romances seem undernourished by comparison.

March 17, 2005
Though sprung from the mind of a woman, the film plays like a hetero male fantasy of tortured love.
March 16, 2005
Now here's a daring version of l'amour fou.

The script is morose and unfocused -- not to mention hard to believe and insulting to women.

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

A movie of robust scenes.
June 1, 2004
The two things that keep the film from falling into laughable melodrama are its continual inventions on a stylistic level ... and the exceptional level of acting.
May 17, 2004
[Cruz] gives an unforgettable portrayal of a beautifully raw and innocent woman whose capacity for love towers over all who would despoil her.
