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.

A sprawling affair, filled with bad accents ... tired cliches about studly horsemen and young girls' sexual awakenings, and really bad lip-syncing to Italian opera.

There's hardly a moment that feels authentic. Maybe that's why the man is crying.

There isn't too much happening, other than a lot of lip-synching.

I prefer to think of this movie as The Critic Who Cried.

The beginning is a cheat, the ending an absurdity, and virtually everything in between an inanity.

Paired, [Ricci and Depp] stare the film down, right down into the ground.
