The storyline is overwrought and awkward, and the audience is distanced from the flatly drawn characters.

I prefer to think of this movie as The Critic Who Cried.
Potter eschews drama for posing, politics for postulating, and provides enough symbolic broad strokes to gag a magic realist.
It's as though we're being dared not to take the movie seriously, although nothing but the pre-Holocaust setting compels you to do so.
There's only one performer in the movie who looks completely at ease with what he's doing: the horse.
If [Potter] personally, in her 40s, can go to Argentina and become a tango dancer, then we can't complain about anything that happens to Suzie. Not that we'd want to.
A poetic look at transience, betrayal, loss and doom.
The film brings grace and balance to the traditional Holocaust story.
The Man Who Cried hits all the wrong notes right from the get-go and never relents.
Potter, unlike most, doesn't batter you with what she wants you to feel. As the lyrics of a song, this film is poetry. I suspect it will linger with me long after its details would normally fade. Beautiful.
"The Man Who Cried" should be approached as a classic silent film where the movement and emotion tell the story, with dialogue being used sparingly.
A grand looking film always giving one hope it will come up with something sweeping to say...
Ricci ... can't hold audience interest for more than about five minutes, especially when she's stuck with material as superficial and slow-moving as this period drama.
Very linear and forgettable, but also quite harmless and watchable.
This is a fairly basic Nazis = bad film. There's not much in the way of political acumen, and the characters and their storylines never escape from basic types. The acting is good until the characters begin the worst lip synching in film history. Potter's dialogue is fairly stilted, but the art direction and cinematography is good.
As a whole, the film needed to escape cliche and take greater advantage of its cast, all of whom are capable of strong, nuanced performances.
Really good movie. Depp and Ricci have a really intsense love scene. Depp tends to look at her longingly for a good 2/3s of the film. But I'll forgive..he's lovely. And Blanchett does a really flighty portrayal of a early 20th century gold-digger. All in all..great story of perserverance with a stellar cast..but honestly...I don't understand the title.
Ricci turns in a really good performance.
