The Way We Laughed (1998)
Critic Reviews for The Way We Laughed
To watch Gianni Amelio's luminous The Way We Laughed is to reconnect with Italian cinema in all its richness of emotion and command of expressive gesture.
A haunting, richly textured film that, like the Italian director's unforgettable Lamerica, dramatizes the plight of poverty on an epic scale.
... a masterpiece about filial love and the horrors of poverty.
This is the kind of European film you rarely see anymore, with characters and circumstances that are easily debatable. Two viewers may never reach the same conclusion about the film.
The making of this picture is so sure that hope for Amelio, for his future, is almost forced on us.
More frustrating than gripping thanks to the fractured, often confusing narrative and the director's pro-pensity for extremely long takes.
