Critic Reviews for The Passionate Thief

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (4)

  • Screenwriter D'Amico called Monicelli "a superb director, with the rare gift of comic timing - which cannot be taught, either you have it or you don't." No one seeing "The Passionate Thief" will care to argue the point.

  • There isn't much of a story in "The Passionate Thief," though much - including shimmering life, lust and comedy - happens.

  • While the madcap adventures provide plenty of entertainment, it's Monicelli's sympathetic portrait of complex individuals ... that wins viewers over.

  • It's best just to yield to it - easy enough to do when you're falling into Magnani's ample embrace.
