La tigre e la neve (The Tiger and the Snow) Reviews

January 4, 2007
Roberto Benigni here plays out a madcap tale of romantic obsession against the backdrop of the Iraq invasion. The results are neither profound nor funny.
December 29, 2006
This film, one of the worst of 2006, almost has to be seen to be believed -- a comedy about a man who goes to Iraq, and, amid a string of comic misadventures, tries to save the life of his love, who has been gravely wounded in a bombing.

Like Life Is Beautiful, The Tiger and the Snow incongruously offers sharp laughs and touches of tenderness amid moments of drama and danger.

The only award Benigni's misconceived and unfunny The Tiger and the Snow could possibly win is for Worst Movie of 2006.

Shameless, utterly predictable and grimly unfunny nonsense.
December 29, 2006
Perhaps a greater passage of time was needed to provide a more effective historical perspective, but Tiger has a bigger problem with a dramatic structure that sags conspicuously in the middle, never to completely correct itself.
December 29, 2006
Roberto Benigni's film is a scorching affront to Italians, Iraqis and the intelligence of movie audiences everywhere.

Neither profound nor funny, but merely uncomfortable. A hubristic failure at risky humor, The Tiger and the Snow provides Benigni his own Michael Richards moment.
December 28, 2006
[Roberto Benigni's] an irritating goofball at times, but there's a genuine sense of tragedy and darkness -- of the most ancient traditions of clowning, in fact -- underneath it all.
