Critic Reviews of "Malèna"TIME MagazineFebruary 07, 2001
Bereft of the more richly textured sentiments of Tornatore's Cinema Paradiso.San Francisco ChronicleFebruary 07, 2001
[Tornatore] eludes sentimentality with a romantic vision wide enough to embrace the range of human experience.VarietyFebruary 07, 2001

Transparently misogynist at its core.ReelViewsFebruary 02, 2001

A fully-fleshed out portrait, swirled in sweetness and nostalgia.CinenganosJuly 25, 2004

With Fellini and Leoni gone, who now stands as Italy's greatest living filmmaker? ... The correct answer has to be Giuseppe Tornatore.
