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 -

Can Tyler act? Impossible to say. Bertolucci's neatest trick is to have constructed the movie around Tyler's gawky unself-consciousness. Full Review
David Rooney
A model of poise and restraint, the film flows in a way that is deliberately undramatic, but made no less involving by the dreamy gentleness of its approach. Full Review

For those who simply want to drink in the northern Italian countryside and Tyler's physical details, it's quite an experience. But as a story, Stealing Beauty (which Bertolucci wrote with Susan Minot) is a misbegotten, sentimental reunion with old European cinema. Full Review

This film maker's supremely tactile, sensual style and his taste for exoticism are captivatingly on display in Stealing Beauty, even if the film's philosophizing sometimes lacks the intellectual heft of a cotton puff. Full Review

What's more, Bertolucci's voice is stronger, clearer and more effortlessly confident than it has been in years. He's stolen the beauty of Tuscany and his youthful star and transformed it into an exquisite work of movie art. Full Review
