    Too much of the film is a muddle, and it feels like work, not play.

    An ambitious but mind-numbingly tedious and often incomprehensible film.

    Wall Street JournalJoe Morgenstern

    The essence of Youth Without Youth, which was shot -- luminously -- in Romania, lies in its solemn speculations about aging, time and consciousness. Mr. Coppola is one of the cinema's peerless masters, and I would have enjoyed nothing more than a chance to celebrate his new film. I'm truly sorry to say, then, that I found it impenetrable.

    Lacking coherence and suspense, the picture is likely to attract a cult following while disappointing Coppola's fan base.

    The movie is one soporific, depressed, deadeningly vague scene after another.
