    A plodding, directionless period piece melodrama whose meandering script and largely one-dimensional characters are unable to elevate this film to the loftiness to which it aspires. Regrettably, its exquisite cinematography and fine production values aren't enough to salvage this otherwise-mediocre offering.

    The less said about this contrived mess of a movie the better. False in every way, from its overly sepia tones to its forced dialogue, stilted performances and plot points so absurd you will actually laugh out load, THE IMMIGRANT is made bearable by the amazing Marion Cotillard who can simply do no wrong. Her performance is complex and oh so subtle. Thank you Marion for saving THE IMMIGRANT.

    The Immigrant is nothing more than a horrible soap-opera. The storytelling is clumsy to say the least and the characters are as shallow as a puddle. Its a movie with no point and no direction.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. This movie was incredibly disappointing. The characters are static and the main character is completely abused for no reason. Literally, the horrible things that happen to her don't even move the plot along. The whole story seems to have no point in my opinion. Expand

    Visually evokes Coppola’s "Godfather Part II" and Leone’s "Once Upon a Time in America," but in its utterly irony-free melodramatic sincerity also suggests a silent-era woman’s picture à la D.W. Griffith, King Vidor or G.W. Pabst.

    The Immigrant is two hours long, but I stayed even longer in my seat, through the credits, still in thrall to it all. The title is singular, but the scope is not so easily quantifiable.

    An astonishingly beautiful, irresistibly grim movie.
