Audience Reviews for Il Grido (The Cry)

  • Apr 25, 2017
    An insufferably dull, outdated and pointless film that forces us to be in the company of a hateful macho (who we couldn't feel any sympathy for) as his life is surrounded by several weak women who have no personality. Besides, the ending is simply ridiculous.

    Very gray and desolate. What I liked about this film was the strange glimmer of hope present throughout Aldo's journey despite such despair. The use of music throughout is pretty cool too. Strange, absurd, and depressing film.

    A heartbroken love letter to existentialism. The protagonist looks for that which cannot be replaced mainly because, just as it is stated in the movie, "emotions are not dictated by reason". It is gorgeously filmed in such a way that the landscapes and the scenery can interact with the brief existentialist tones that this great early film by the Italian poet of self-destruction acquires. 99/100
