Critic Reviews

  1. The movie is powerfully acted. Mr. Lo Verso's passionate, fiery-eyed Giovanni is an incandescent star turn by an actor with world class charisma.
  2. 70
    The film, beautifully shot in widescreen by Luca Bigazzi, is surprisingly accessible and always engaging, if ultimately tragic.
  3. Shows the fate of Sicilians who moved to the Italian industrial city of Turin 40-plus years ago, and it suggests that the experience of relocation is universal.
  4. The sweeping, confounding conclusion therefore unfolds with a beauty and an ease that seem truly organic. The Way We Laughed has that feeling of being a work of art.
  5. This is a film precisely constructed, brilliantly imagined.
  6. Longwinded, slow-starting but moving film.
  7. 88
    If you like guessing games, don't miss it.
  8. 90
    Writer-director Gianni Amelio masterfully chronicles the ways two people can betray each other, and especially themselves, in the name of love.
  9. Beautifully made and performed, this is a film of considerable insight into both the life of the impoverished and the mystery of human personality.
  10. 88
    A film of great ingenuity and imagination, full of suggestive power, and it deserves to be seen.
