WHAT ARE CRITICS SAYING?

30

Variety by

Sally Potter, who leapt to critical attention with her 1992 adaptation of Virginia Woolf's "Orlando" -- makes a serious misstep with The Man Who Cried.
40

Village Voice by J. Hoberman

The Man Who Cried is like a Yiddish generational tearjerker told from the perspective of the lost child rather than that of the bereaved parent.
40

Rolling Stone by Peter Travers

Potter gets the period details right, but the film itself has long since flown off the rails, miring good intentions in rank soap opera.
75

Chicago Sun-Times by Roger Ebert

This is an amazingly ambitious movie, not so much because of the time and space it covers (a lot), but because Potter trusts us to follow her heroine through one damn thing after another.
