Critic Reviews for Carmen (Bizet's Carmen )

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (1)

Bizet's Carmen is what movies are all about.

October 23, 2004 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…

The organising flaw of this Carmen, which turns it into one long longueur, lies at the nub of the medium's specificity - of what it means to make, or be, a film.

August 1, 2015 | Full Review…

A surefire treat for opera buffs.

November 10, 2008 | Rating: B | Full Review…

The combination of the casting and Bizet's music ought to make for the perfect opera film, but it doesn't quite.

March 21, 2007 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

An opulent and enthralling screen version of Bizet's celebrated opera.
