Tantalizingly structured to intrigue us right from the start.

Dallas Observer
On one level it is highly intimate, yet it is also universal, a modern metaphor for the human condition and the precariousness of life itself.
75
Charlotte Observer
Foggy allegories and misty metaphors.

Chicago Reader
A painstakingly crafted nonrealist story, which doesn't seem to imply anything beyond what it depicts.

Baltimore Sun
There's a ton of joy in The Legend of 1900 -- but it's laid on so thick that one ends up more numbed than stirred, overcome by one too many Hallmark moments.

San Francisco Examiner
What could have been an insightful, irresistible movie is instead a simple, self-contained fable, pleasing to look at but meaningless
50
Miami Herald
A muddled fantasy revolving around a really good cruise ship piano player, doesn''t live up to its title.
40
A sumptuous ride with breathtaking scenes and a soaring musical score.

New York Daily News
It doesn't strike a single note of authentic emotion.
25
The schmaltz is relentless in The Legend of 1900, the newest film from "Cinema Paradiso'' director Giuseppe Tornatore. It comes in waves, it leeches onto every surface and it turns decent actors into sticky-sweet fuzzballs.
