Ratings & Reviews

  1. Django's rating of the film Hysteria

    An enjoyable, if quickly forgettable, romantic comedy. Everything from the cinematography to the acting to the editing is just fine but considering the subject matter one would expect the film to be either funnier or more erotic or both.

  2. Luca Soldati's rating of the film Hysteria

    Opera troppo prevedibile, che non appassiona. Il tema permetteva una freschezza che non è stata sfruttata, inserendo una storia d'amore che non convince. L'analisi sociale è ben fatta e risulta di buon impatto, ma poteva essere più ficcante. Finale troppo conciliatorio e cerchiobottista. La regia è troppo basilare e non denota impegno, insieme ad un comparto tecnico che non incide. La messa in scena invece non è male

  3. smndvdcl's rating of the film Hysteria

    A superb socialist-feminist film which shows one of the most incendiary psychiatric developments courtesy of Granville (with arguable historical accuracy - citation: Rachel Maine's 'The Technology of Orgasm'), where the cure for 'hysteria' was a 'massaging of the pelvic region'. Notions of femininity are subverted through the characterisation of the stereotypically feminine Emily and the 'unfeminine' Charlotte.

  4. Nicole Cahali's rating of the film Hysteria

    rendeu umas risadas mas achei umas partes problemáticas.

  5. Aprilia Gunawan's rating of the film Hysteria

    I only like the first half and never have I found Hugh Dancy this adorable.

  6. Rohan Berry's rating of the film Hysteria

    An enjoyable period comedy with broad elements of farce, that by its very flippant nature actually proves quite political. Gyllenhaal and Dancy are well matched in the rom-com framing of the life of Dr Mortimer Granville, the inventor of the vibrator. I thoroughly embraced the 'Jolly Molly' postscript that managed to link together the predilections of a 'trollop' with the 'glorious' Queen of the Empire, Victoria.

  7. Brian O'blivion's rating of the film Hysteria

    Somewhat funny at times, but even as a comedy this kind of anachronistic and "progressive" take on victorian era morale and manners is predictable and terribly outdated. Even Monty Python were beating a dead horse and that was 45 years ago. Btw. Did R. Everett just come from an AIDS clinic or what the hell was wrong with his face? Obviously they had to hide something with his fake beard. No close-ups of course.

  8. caprivi76's rating of the film Hysteria

    charming and entertaining comedy

  9. msmichel's rating of the film Hysteria

    Fun and often funny film spotlighting the invention of the vibrator but also a time when women were just starting to be questioning their limited roles in society. The cast is cream of the crop and certainly game for adventure here and offers Dancy and Pryce their best roles in years. Not a deep picture but a pleasant one.

  10. Lorena Brandão's rating of the film Hysteria

  11. Patricia Barrera's rating of the film Hysteria

    At the very least entertaining. Maggie Gyllenhaal is fantastic, as always.

  12. ΞRIC B∆D TASTΞ's rating of the film Hysteria

    "yummi, sunday pudding !" a quite funny & naughty fictitious story.

  13. Michelle Martinez's rating of the film Hysteria

    It was the start of a new theory that women had sexual needs. Inventions making it possible for women, not only to become more delightful, but for independence when it came for their needs. Not always having to rely on the men.

  14. Artemis's rating of the film Hysteria

    The conventional ending can be overlooked by the surprisingly clever and ironic portrayal of Victorian society and sparkling dialogue.

  15. AKFilmFan's rating of the film Hysteria

    With fine performances, a subdued level of explicit content, and an enrapturing sense of the period this is a very good light comedy.

  16. Ursule Stonkute's rating of the film Hysteria

    Lovely comedy with great humor dose

  17. Polyglot's rating of the film Hysteria

  18. Daniela's rating of the film Hysteria

    Not worth a watch, really.

  19. Michael Harbour's rating of the film Hysteria

    A charming, if imperfect, Victorian-romantic-comedy-of-manners about poverty and affluence, science progress and stagnation, social activism and social , medical masturbation, overuse injuries, and the invention of the "personal massager." The fine troupe of actors get us deftly past those moments when the director's otherwise sure hand falters on the way to a satisfying conclusion.

  20. pivic's rating of the film Hysteria

    Mostly thanks to Rupert Everett's comic rôle, this film is funny and overall enjoyable as a bundle of a fascinating and true historical tale, wrapped up with humor and good tempo. It's a trifle, and enjoyable as such. Many an Ooh, vicar! joke is found is here, but it's no Carry On-film. A funny reminder not to let other factors - e.g. gender - ruin intelligence.

  21. Natalia La Terza's rating of the film Hysteria

    Un film cretino: dove il vibratore è il personaggio più serio, Rupert Everett non appare in vestaglia rosso vermiglio al piano e nelle carceri dell'800 le donne hanno rossetti e parrucchieri.

  22. Wick's rating of the film Hysteria

    Lovely movie: really funny but somehow deep enough. Too bad for the sappy ending, but I understand why they had to do it like that.

  23. Glim Ho's rating of the film Hysteria

    艰辛的女人那话儿

  24. mondotempesta's rating of the film Hysteria

    2/5. Stesso arrosto di sempre in salsa leggermente variata.
