  2. Ethan's rating of the film Tre liv og bare en død

    This is a fascinating film filled with a lot of quirky characters and some real trippy effects that make this film feel like a precursor to Ameile. Mastroianni is delightful in this and shows that his charm never waned with age.

  3. Ludovic72's rating of the film Tre liv og bare en død

    (3,5 / 5) Selon une trame d'abord réaliste, puis se mettant - comme chez Borges - à "bifurquer" en chemins surréalistes, Mastroianni campe quatre personnages (et non trois) d'abord successivement, puis quasi-simultanément. Un bel exercice schizophrénique, où Ruiz s'amuse avec les couleurs, les miroirs, les split-screens, les superpositions… mais qui devient trop explicatif (trop "simple" ?) dans sa dernière partie.

  4. tidal waif's rating of the film Tre liv og bare en død

    + However bleakly / fluffily refutable, each Ruiz film is commendable enough to earn him the Rubaiyat's 11th quatrain sans fear of retraction thereafter. (Here with a Loaf of Bread beneath the Bow, | A Flask of Wine, a Book of Verse and Thou | Beside me singing (filming) in the Wilderness - | And Wilderness is Paradise enow.) Behind the pompousness of declaration lies my awe w/ the Cortazarian mischief of this mind.

  5. tintinmugshot's rating of the film Tre liv og bare en død

    Fantastic. Marcello's presence is absolutely shining and perfect.

  6. David Sindmark Hörnfeldt's rating of the film Tre liv og bare en død

  7. captainfez's rating of the film Tre liv og bare en død

    Please note that in the final credits, his suit gets second billing.

  8. DrFirestone's rating of the film Tre liv og bare en død

    Amazing feverish dream or, perhaps, a nightmare on the verge of the surreal... Each "story" escalates the ongoing madness. I loved the subtle, dark humour that is used sparingly but just in the right place. The stories and the transitions are rather confusing, but I guess that fits the theme. It so much reminds me of the affliction of schizophrenia but in a light, humourous take.

  9. dionysus67's rating of the film Tre liv og bare en død

    One of Ruiz's very elegiac and subtle films, driven by elegant cinematography, Mastroianni's craftmanship and by the unique ellipses that gently upset the time-space continuum. Impossible to convey its plot and multiple unfoldings of the human personality, Ruiz's film is a tapestry of emotions, moods and of gentle melancholy on the meaning of our existence, presented here in cyclical narrative structure.

  10. Jeff Heinzl's rating of the film Tre liv og bare en død

    I enjoyed how this film pulls together (explodes?) its various parts in a feverish final act (when it seems at first that we're seeing a bunch of unrelated narratives starring Marcello Mastroianni).

  11. Samuel Wells's rating of the film Tre liv og bare en død

    The film is almost comically french. All of the stereotypes of obtuse and melodramatic "frenchness" are on display within this film. That is not it doesn't have beatuy in these moments. The narrative progresses swiftly with a good trust in the audience's intelligence. The score is lush and only a little too over bearing to add the atmosphere to the otherwise quaint film. The film well crafted, just lacking realness.

  12. chaospress's rating of the film Tre liv og bare en død

    Quite a trip, and not an altogether good one for me judging by the fact I had a nightmare afterward and woke up with a headache and some serious nausea in the morning. I have mixed feelings here, actually thinking if not for Mastroianni it may well have been flat out dreadful. 3.5

  13. Slappy McGee's rating of the film Tre liv og bare en død

    A mish-mash of narratives. Great work by Mastroianni as he transitions from scenario to scenario. Each of the individual stories is enjoyable, however strung together it doesn't work entirely smoothly. A bit disjointed and off-putting at times. But still... worth the watch. Some interesting visual moments and camera work at times. A few quite enjoyable comic moments as well. A bit uneven, but intriguing in the end.

  14. koolacct's rating of the film Tre liv og bare en død

    My 2nd Ruiz film to date, and once again a favourite--the pace is right, the color schemes (red and gold washes, rose-filter, white daylight) make note, and the story, twisting, somehow unrelated, converges in the third act. The score, lush & telling, but scarce. There's such imperfect consonance by the end of the film, which leaves you with a sense of peace amongst obvious tension and upset, much like a dream.

  15. Levi Miah's rating of the film Tre liv og bare en død

    A multi-layered quirk. Outstanding cinematography supports odd performances that only work given the strange context of the intricately threaded and dryly ridiculous script.

  16. Diderot's rating of the film Tre liv og bare en død

    A light-hearted, whimsical string of overlapping narratives that's really just one story with variations, and a charming end-of-career performance from the great Mastroianni (accompanied here by his daughter).

  17. Adam Whybray's rating of the film Tre liv og bare en død

    3.5 stars. Sly but never winking. Ruiz is mana for a neurotic and guilty soul like me as while his films do not suspend morality, they have a different morality. '90s Ruiz is a relaxed stylistic, which gives his films of this period an easy charm, though they are not without their quiet fevers and consternations. I was surprised to be reminded of Paul Auster's 'New York Trilogy'. "I was jealous... jealous of myself."

  18. Dimitris's rating of the film Tre liv og bare en død

    If Mastroianni is the narrative link, then Money is the thematic one.A man who wasted his time with money-eating fairies and alcohol. A man who divests of his wealth, but can't escape his upper class status. A philanthropist with nefarious purposes who enslaves his protégés. Excess, caste system, commodified social responsibility: all aspects of the 4th character, the businessman, "a sign that you belong to an elite"

  19. Christofi Cotonou's rating of the film Tre liv og bare en død

    Masterpiece. Caro and Jeunet owe Raoul Ruiz their careers as tonally anything they've done has been a poor paper trace of this original and morbid film. Similarly Gosling owes his career to the great Mastroianni's fussy-cool persona. It ties itself together toward the end, rejecting the promise of pure surrealism. I'm actually glad they did that, it means I might watch it again.

  20. Superfrog's rating of the film Tre liv og bare en død

    First thirty minutes are great. "Alors, l'affaire est conclue, vous resterez ici comme ca je rentrerai chez moi" The rest is also very good but less sustained.

  21. Duda's rating of the film Tre liv og bare en død

    Sorry for the rate just want to point out that I can't watch it in portugal. It says that I can't watch on the iPad because of my location. MUBI why????

  22. Kevin Matthews's rating of the film Tre liv og bare en død

    Strange, dreamy, and wonderful, Three Lives And Only One Death stars Marcello Mastroianni as a man living four different lives, with them all eventually intersecting more and more as the central character reaches a crucial tipping point that may well bring down his mental house of cards. Director Raul Ruiz weaves through a complex narrative and a number of tonal changes with deceptive ease.

  23. J's rating of the film Tre liv og bare en død

    Not funny (maybe it's better if you understand the French, but the native I watched it with wasn't laughing), not engaging. Tedious...

  24. Pango's rating of the film Tre liv og bare en død

    It's fantastic to see how many European actors can speak and play in two or more languages. Make seem most of Hollywood actors limited. Great performance by Mastroianni.
