What we think

There’s something deceptively light about Martin Eden, the film forever slipping just out of grasp, never quite resolving into something whole. It’s all the better for it.

What others think

Martin Eden is a sad story of a sad man who lacks the capacity for happiness and who is astonished to find that artistic success is as compromised as any other kind. But there is a kind of thrill in tracing his progress from rags to riches to annihilation.
Peter Bradshaw The Guardian
By the film’s stagnant and distressing conclusion, all the vibrancy that was once present has been hollowed out.
Glenn Heath Jr. Little White Lies
Martin’s trajectory from wide-eyed proletarian to jaundiced celebrity is drawn in one fluid stroke, the struggles and successes of his dual pursuit of a writing career and Elena Orsini’s hand all integrated within the same inexorable motion.
Giovanni Marchini Camia Sight & Sound
