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.

A poetic look at transience, betrayal, loss and doom.

a survivor story set against a historical background writ from the movie screen

The whole film rings true to artful tones and positions, because Vierny sees the triumph of freedom over oppression as a kind of graceful, superlative production.

Has a good story; a lush, tantalizing style and tone; and an excellent cast.

Always interesting in a morbid and curious sort of way.

Potter's cinematic vision is what makes The Man Who Cried shimmer and levitate.
