Description Toby, a cynical but supposedly genius film director finds himself trapped in the outrageous delusions of an old Spanish shoe-maker who believes himself to be Don Quixote. In the course of their comic and increasingly surreal adventures, Toby is forced to confront the tragic repercussions of a film he made in his idealistic youth - a film that changed the hopes and dreams of a small Spanish village forever. Can Toby make amends and regain his humanity? Can Don Quixote survive his madness and imminent death? Or will love conquer all?

On the one hand, this is a charming tale about an eccentric bookshop owner who is finally able to accomplish what he set out to do all those years ago - build a home and make a family out of it. Yet he is also concerned about the fate of his beloved quixote, and becomes determined to make him fall in love with someone else. I was quite taken with this film, for many reasons. Firstly, the characters were fascinating, and well played. The setting was beautiful, and I couldn't help but feel a little nostalgic when watching. The soundtrack is also superb, in the way that it brings you to a warm feeling. The characters were made to fit the story, and the tension you feel as you are trying to piece together what is going on is amazing. There are a couple of more tiny flaws in the plot, but these are just minor annoyances and they don't take away from the film at all. The best part of the film for me was the chemistry between the two leads. All the other actors were decent, but I'm going to be honest. It was the lead actors who really carried the film. With the exception of Louise Lasser, who seemed to have been cast without any real talent, all of the other actors were perfect for their roles. They had the chemistry, the charisma, and the sense of adventure, all of which made this film work. This is a very different story, and I feel that it's a shame that it only received such an appreciation by some. But for me, the story and the characters work so well together, that I'm not going to complain. Also, I feel that this film is a little too short, which gives it an extra spark in some parts, and can leave you thinking that it's a bit overlong, but this isn't the case at all. There is enough story here to keep you hooked, and there is enough adventure to keep you occupied. This film works very well, and deserves its reputation as one of the best films of 2003. 8/10

It's not often that I write a review of a film, but this one is about to be changed. I have a high tolerance for pretentious cinematic nonsense that takes itself too seriously. The Man Who Killed Don Quixote, however, does not fall into this category, and it has some great moments of brilliance in it. It is not the best movie I have ever seen, nor does it feature the best acting I have ever seen, nor does it make any substantial contributions to my personal sense of movies. But it is very, very good, very, very good. The cinematography is phenomenal. The costumes, props, and sets are uniformly fantastic. The acting is all around excellent. Hugo Weaving, as Don Quixote's creator, does an excellent job, and the lead role is very well-played. But the real magic of this film is in the production and execution of this film, and in the ability of some of the greatest talents to master the art of film-making. The directors, costume designers, art director, and makeup people all do a great job, but one special effect stands out above the rest. It is the boat scene. It's simply amazing. Everything that's going on is perfectly rendered, and the film is able to hold your attention the entire way through. It is such a wonderful example of how real filmmakers and artisans can produce art without sounding pretentious. The entire sequence is shot almost entirely on a single camera. In the end, the film is an extraordinary achievement and an inspiration to many filmmakers. I look forward to seeing more work from this talented crew in the future. It was a great film and I will definitely be looking forward to watching it again.
