The Man Who Cried Review

Even the title smacks of pretense, reminiscent of The Flower that Drank the Moon, that fictional bit of art house tripe overheard in Ghost World. But from Sally Potter, who proved so very self-obsessed in The Tango Lesson, returns again to her roots, this time studying her fascination with Russian and girls who sing. Christina Ricci takes center stage as the virtually silent Suzie, a Russian Jew sent to England and then Paris on the eve of WWII, but her brooding inactivity may simply be of too little interest to all but the most devoted fans of her, Johnny Depp (equally silent when not crying), and classic opera -- which plays throughout the movie.
