I was lucky enough to catch this film on its re-release. Lucky I say as it hardly took the world by storm and screened on one of my five local cinemas for only one week. This by no means did it justice. Perhaps it suffered a crisis of identity, not being as flambouyant and garish as Moulin Rouge, but this was exactly what appealed to me about it. It did appear grimey and rugged but that added to its charm and that atmosphere translated to the characters perfectly. It brought across the rather alternative poetry of the working class suburb and contains many moments that had me in stitches, including one particular scene with Chritopher Walken to rival his best ever work.

I'm great fan of the Coen Brothers and specially Big Lebowsky so the expectations were high. Despite the bad critics, Romance & Cigarettes wasn't a disappointment at all. Quite the opposite, I loved it from the moment that Gandolfini kicks off "Lonely as a man without love". Fantastic direction from Turturro. Can't wait to see it again and keep it next to the other masterpieces from the Coen's.

I saw this energetic film in the cinema and instantly clicked with it - I just can't wait for the DVD! This boisterous film is filled with all kinds of pastiches and a cracking cast incuding the indominatible Elaine Stritch - still a powerful screen presence. And why hasn't anyone else thought of teaming up Chrstopher Walken with Susan Sarandon and Gandolfini before?! And as for Kate Winslet!! She's definitely survived the banality/schlock of 'Titanic' and is stronger than ever, especially here with her amazing Northern accent - Jimmy McGovern should get her on his next project! The songs are delivered with gusto and imagination with the routine for 'Delilah' being a particular highlight. And let's not forget the brilliantly sleazey Steve Buscemi - need I say any more? If you can deal with blue collar New Yorkers bursting into song and dance and the bawdiness of Chaucer then this is the film for you!Thanks John Tuturro, for everything!

By hillbank68 TOP 500 REVIEWER on 12 Feb. 2007
Format: DVD
This is a very watchable film in the Dennis Potter 'Pennies from Heaven' mould - that is, a pretty down-to-earth plot (blue-collar man cheats on wife, she is angry, he eventually detaches himself from his younger mistress, it all ends sadly) punctuated by dance routines and singalong classics with the actors singing with the tracks. The musical bits are amusing and intriguing, with incongruous choreography (a group of firemen, policemen, local labourers), and the performances are all excellent. I don't know why Aida Turturro (Janice Soprano in another incarnation) is cast as James Gandolfini's (Tony S. ditto) daughter - that just doesn't work. But Gandolfini is good as the fairly bone-headed but bewildered and in the end sympathetic hero, Susan Sarandon is very feisty as his wife and Kate Winslet puts in a bravura turn as the very foul-mouthed, ginger-haired mistress ; Elaine Stritch has a marvellous cameo as the mother from hell. The film ends surprisingly with considerable pathos, but mostly it is brassy and loud and sometimes just a bit hard to follow. After ten minutes I was for ejecting the DVD and watching something else, but it gets to you and is, in the end, worth a look. It is certainly something different.

It's just a beautiful film. It's the poetry behind, and of, the mundane, the passionate and romantic feelings which flash through the everyday. And it's the most perfect interpretation of Shakespeare for the modern age, I think. I didn't think it was that odd, either, or odder than any other musicals: the music is either kind of integrated into the action of the movie or the song is contrived to curve into its own little music video. But, though it's standard to the form, it doesn't feel superficial, or forced, which is perhaps what most people find annoying in musicals.

Utterly brilliant! A film that takes you unawares with it's originality and energy. Terrific soundtrack and wonderful, hysterically funny, dance sequences. Great cast, all acting their socks off. A tour de force!

I like most of the Coen brothers stuff and I love John Turturro in almost everything he does, but... This starts well and it's good to see Kate Winslet as a tart but it just seems to wander off in odd directions and finishes up being a confused mess. Plus it's "Pennies from Heaven" repackaged.
