Critic Reviews for The Etruscan Smile (Rory's Way)
Brian Cox gives one of his finest performances in this familiar but affecting drama about a cantankerous Scotsman facing his journey's end.
If nothing else, the movie makes a strong case for Cox's astounding resilience, an ability to take even the most routine gig and deepen its potential.
Rory is often a brute, but The Etruscan Smile forgives that all because he is being authentically himself. But at the cost of every other character?
Soap opera elements are unavoidable, but the film has energy and spirit, thanks to Cox's bright, charming performance.
While Cox's typically sterling performance is not quite enough to rescue The Etruscan Smile from succumbing to bathos, it goes a long way toward making the film palatable.
