    Benigni's artfully composed images are as empty as his political convictions.
  2. 20
    The results are 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.
  3. 0
    The longer the movie goes on, the more annoying Benigni's infantile behavior becomes.
  4. Remember that manic, rambling Oscar acceptance speech, when Benigni leapt around the auditorium? That might have been charming for two or three minutes, but imagine two hours of it.
  5. It doesn't seem possible that a film with both the formidable Reno and Waits could be all bad, but The Tiger and the Snow is precisely so.
  6. A scorching affront to Italians, Iraqis and the intelligence of movie audiences everywhere.

    This review contains spoilers, click full review link to view. Everybody see Benigni only as comedian, but it's clear how deep character he is, so, another love story from him
    as director,certainly playing "real-life" Benigni (is he actually playing?), searching for society approval like individuality, but he is certain about war and crimes disapproval (Iraq theme), and he finds love as the only response to everything bad and odd..Must see, must think.

    Only if you have yourself been hopeless and deeply in love will you be able to understand the complexity of someone like Begnini's Only if you have yourself been hopeless and deeply in love will you be able to understand the complexity of someone like Begnini's character in this film. He loves his wife. And, he loves her completely. Indeed, he may have strayed. Nonetheless, his commitment to this woman is all he now knows. She is his everything, his every thought. She completes his day, his night, his every breath...and, without her. As he said to the old Arab pharmacist, there is nothing left...on this earth. Full Review »
