Critic Reviews for Harry and Tonto
An excellent motion picture, wise and entertaining and upholding the basic dignity of man in a world that often moves too fast for him.
Mazursky is to be commended for this wonderful portrait because too few movies deal with the elderly and contain the wit and originality as does this one.
"Harry and Tonto" is an unusual film which addresses itself to the matter of growing old in America and it manages to do so without foundering in mawkish sentimentality or delivering a sermon on the dignity of age.
The film excels over every mile of Carney's journey and in every scene in which Carney appears - which is virtually every one in the picture.
Thrills and chills there are not in "Harry and Tonto." But there's a lot of Art Carney, a warmly welcome new starring presence at the movies.
Audience Reviews for Harry and Tonto
The pinnacle of Art Carney's later career. We have the story of man forced onto the street with only a beloved cat as companion. Naturally the humanity of the character is brought forth with the change in his circumstances and Carney's interactions with those he meets are memorable.
Paul Mazursky's best film ever! A beautiful story with a freshing screenplay, directing and the acting of Art Carney, Academy Award winner by is role in this movie. Harry and Tonto is touching.
Mazursky has crafted a story populated with humanity and decency, and where the only true villain is father time. Harry and Tonto is sort of a modernized, colorized and Americanized version of Umberto D.. Sad but still heartwarming.
