Critic Reviews for Maria's Lovers

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (1)

Mr. Konchalovsky, who is capable of anything from sweeping emotional overstatement to attention-getting symbolism to Altmanesque clutter, has quite an eye for eccentric talent.

April 7, 2020 | Full Review…

Maria's Lovers is a far cry -- if not a large howl -- from the emotion-Laced mature study of blossoming sexuality it was meant to be, for this thing is just such a silly, goofy soap opera that few will be fooled into taking seriously.

March 25, 2020 | Full Review…

A sensitive and subtle film about love, lust and emotional scars, the title is perhaps misleading. The film explores the quandary that two lovers face when sexual inadequacy causes a void in their relationship

December 20, 2008 | Full Review…

There are some remarkable scenes, but these are nearly outweighed by some heavy-handed symbolism and some deadly dull spots where the narrative seems to be in a holding pattern.

May 20, 2003 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

A solid-looking piece of erotic drama that focuses on what's going on below the surface (and below the belt).

July 13, 2002 | Rating: 70/100
