Everything in the movie is presented somewhat vaguely, which grants it a certain interest that we could call fascination, if weren't about something more evident, fundamental, honest, and spontaneous. [Full Review in Spanish]

In this age where the human behavior system is rarely an important facet in film narratives, here is a picture that still throbs with all the pain and misery of its deep emotional wounds.

What makes it work is it is grounded in real life. It's a story and a character study with a strong philosophical framework and people that are recognisably human. Factor in superb filmmaking, saturated sensual natural light and cinematography.

Regardless of all its solos, failed majesties, and off-the-mark horrors, even as a highly imperfect adventure, it is still the best adventure in film to be seen in this pullulating year.

When Brando improvises within Bertolucci's structure, his full art is realized; his performance is intuitive, rapt, princely. Working with Brando, Bertolucci achieves realism with the terror of actual experience still alive on the screen.

The sex scenes that made the film famous are just a symptom of a deep pain and also its treatment. [Full review in Portuguese.]

Brando gives a terrific performance, but Bertolucci's movie as a whole, which was so bold and audacious in 1972, does not hold up very well.

Took the world by storm with its strategy of sexual frankness and a towering performance by Marlon Brando. [Blu-ray]

This emotional, sexual jumble of a movie still contains some interesting ideas, and some gorgeous cinematic poetry.

But when we look at this film, it signals a feeble turn towards art house eroticism which is tame by today's standards. For as Maria Schneider herself says ', we've seen much worse'.

Bernardo Bertolucci's 1972 masterpiece of post-modern existential angst is an irrefutable art film that attempts to reconcile a depth of social existence through its sexually liberated characters.

Brando gives his all but just ends up becoming himself. Interesting for its historical notoriety, but overlong and dull in places.
December 7, 2007
Not to be missed.

The operatic extravagance of Bernardo Bertolucci's style has emerged more clearly since this 1972 drama, which still managed to seem vaguely naturalistic in the midst of its extravagant camera moves and eccentric construction.

Bernardo Bertolucci's controversial drama is actually a dark, torrid masterpiece about love and grief.
July 14, 2007
Nobody makes sex films like this any more.

It's Brando's film: his monologues devastate.
December 9, 2005
Ah, for the days when real grown-ups made erotic films.

Seamy, atmospheric Brando as directed by Bertolucci.
