Overview

Johnny Depp and Christina Ricci star in director Sally Potter's visually dramatic movie The Man Who Cried. Universal has done an excellent job on this 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen transfer. Flaws and imperfections are kept to the bare minimum with only a small amount of edge enhancement showing up in a few key scenes. Otherwise, this is a fine-looking transfer with well-rendered colors and deep, dark black levels. The audio is presented in Dolby Digital 5.1 in French and English as well as DTS Surround in English. While the audio mix on both of these soundtracks is very crisp and full, the use of surround sounds is limited to only a scant few scenes. Also included on this disc are English subtitles. Sadly, the extra features on this disc clock in at the bare minimum, including some cast and crew information, some production notes, a few DVD-ROM features, and theatrical trailers for the films Rat, Pavilion of Women, Beautiful Creatures, and Buffalo 66.

This movie was in my opinion a good FILM..just not great if you dont appreciate films..there was not much speaking and it had a strange ending..it really was not that good..i was disappointed in this movie the only good thing about it is that Johnny Depp looks amazing in this movie and he plays the role of Ceasar very well..it really shows his acting skills

Man Who Cried is lushly photographed--the cinematography is beautiful--but it badly needs some serious editing, both to advance the action and to pick up the pace. Although the film begins in Russia, the main action of the plot doesn't start until Fegele/Suzie (Ricci) arrives in Paris. If it were up to me, I would have chopped off the first half of film, opened with Suzie joining the opera company in Paris, and gone from there, bringing out her back story in conversations with other characters. The theme here--that all of us are only one disaster away from becoming refugees--is well done and there are good turns from the entire cast, especially Cate Blanchett as Lola and Johnny Depp as the brooding Cesar. Ricci, although a competent actress, has very little to do here except look pensive and long suffering. This is a film that has a lot of promise, but doesn't live up to its potential.

The movie was good, but it could have been so much better if Fegele/Suzie had flashbacks during interludes with other characters or even in nightmares or dreams of her past. The beginning and the end are so separated, not just literally. The film seems like three blocks of story that are terribly stitched together. I think the film would have been much more satisfactory with the father figure interspersed throughout in memory sequences or something.
