November 7, 2003
Depressingly unmoving, thanks to unaffecting performances and a story that holds no surprises.

Ann ... would be a cruel egocentric if she weren't so obviously just a fictional pawn.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
September 24, 2003
A movie about terminal illness that even the Lifetime Television Network might reject.

January 5, 2004
A shameless, rather dull disease-of- the-week weeper.

The performances are determinedly low-key, and Ms. Coixet directs even the most charged scenes in a cool, almost affectless style. But the implicit narcissism of the film's title is embraced without really being examined.

Intelligent and affecting as the film is, it buckles under the weight of overexplicitness, a tendency to say more than it needs to.

My Life Without Me is a young person's movie about death, the sort of adolescent daydream in which you imagine your own demise.

October 17, 2003
This one-dimensional ennoblement doesn't sit quite right.
April 1, 2007
A gigantically amoral cliche of a film.
September 26, 2003
What is most infuriating about this film is how the audience is expected to see Anne's selfishness as some kind of personal heroism.

Coixet doesn't make her lead character compelling, or likable.

Plagued by phony poetic moments and self-conscious quirkiness (Maria de Medeiros appears as a braid-wearing hair stylist obsessed with Milli Vanilli...)

Takes place in late fall and early winter, when everything is cold, gray and dying. It's a tough context for a tender story.

November 14, 2003
A strangely grim affair that will stretch the patience of more than a few viewers.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10
September 23, 2003
A tearjerker that falters in its attempts at deep thoughts.
September 28, 2003
It's a rich idea, but only partly realized in this quiet, intimately shot drama.

Sarah Polley shoots another movie in the foot with her ice-queen demeanour
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
October 2, 2003
Detached from her part and just going through the motions of the acting, Polley leaves it to a superb supporting cast to [attempt to] carry the film.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
September 25, 2003
This isn't a poignant drama about courage and imagination -- it's a contrived fantasy about courage and imagination.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
September 15, 2003
insulting and irritating
