  • In contrasting the sexuality and rebellion of Lucy's generation with his own, Bertolucci clearly yearns to rekindle his creative spirit. show more

  • When Bertolucci points his camera out a window, it's like putting on your glasses. Everything is lush, drenched in color and right there for you to touch. show more

  • Filmmakers of Bernardo Bertolucci's magnitude don't often take on sexual coming-of-age movies, but judging from the pleasures of Stealing Beauty, maybe more of them should. [14 Jun 1996 Pg.04.D] show more

    I saw the movie this afternoon and was quite impressed with the beauty of Tuscany and the cast - it was charming and easy on the eyes and ears - I don\'t know much Italian and should- both parents spoke it daily - but the little I knew was enough to get the idea - mostly about a young girl away from home and ready to start a life - Liv is beautiiful - so were some other girls in the cast - Jeremy Irons waa appealing as always - I could watch it again..
