Critic Reviews of "Stealing Beauty"Desson Thomson Washington PostDecember 07, 2007
[A] hilariously inscrutable exercise in pseudo-profundity.Jonathan Rosenbaum Chicago ReaderDecember 07, 2007
A civilized, mellow, and generally graceful chamber piece.Geoff Andrew Time OutFebruary 09, 2006
A welcome reminder of Bertolucci's directorial assurance.Mick LaSalle San Francisco ChronicleJune 18, 2002
[Bertolucci] builds an homage to beauty around a sullen void.Peter Travers Rolling StoneMay 12, 2001
In contrasting the sexuality and rebellion of Lucy's generation with his own, Bertolucci clearly yearns to rekindle his creative spirit.Jack Mathews Los Angeles TimesFebruary 14, 2001
Even a lesser Bertolucci is an event, and Stealing Beauty has its charms.Joyce Slaton Common Sense MediaJanuary 02, 2011
Meditation on sex, life, death; older teens only.Jeffrey M. Anderson Combustible CelluloidMay 26, 2006
I find it to be one of his most sublime achievements, filled with a sunny laziness and slow awakening.Chuck O'Leary Fantastica DailyOctober 09, 2005
Liv Tyler is radiant, but the film itself suffers from the same self-indulgence that always hampers Bertolucci's work.Robin Clifford Reeling ReviewsApril 09, 2005
The script is in keeping with the fabric of the film. It's languid and meanders about a bit, but, coupled with the lush and inviting Tuscany countryside, this is not a bad thing at all.Dan Lybarger Hollywood BitchslapJanuary 19, 2005
Gorgeous Tuscan scenery and a breakthrough performance by Liv Tyler help make this sudsy flick entertaining.
