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.

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.

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.
