      Simon Abrams Slant Magazine Claudio Cupellini's A Quiet Life works best if you think of it as a divergent alternative scenario for Toni Servillo's character in The Consequences of Love. Rated: 3/4 Apr 22, 2011 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member A misguided attempt to combine a family drama with a story about Camorra, In this movie there is no redemption or atonement, only cynicism and selfishness but there is not even a little bit of the charm of a good crime movie. One positive note is the excellent acting by Toni Servillo (as usual). Watchable but with low expectations. A further sign of Italian cinema crisis in recent years. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/04/23 Full Review Audience Member A misguided attempt to combine a family drama with a story about Camorra, In this movie there is no redemption or atonement, only cynicism and selfishness but there is not even a little bit of the charm of a good crime movie. One positive note is the excellent acting by Toni Servillo (as usual). Watchable but with low expectations. A further sign of Italian cinema crisis in recent years. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review Audience Member A tough subject, dealing with a former killer member of the Camorra, who left for Germany to build a new identity and has to come to terms, after 15 yeas, with his past, on the background of a still actual emergency in Italy, that of rubbish in Naples: a difficult subject to handle, but solidly handled. The director proceeds with a highly controlled and steady direction, made up of sequence-shots, close-ups: this, together with clear-cut and sharp characters and essential dialogues contribute to an overall solid rendering of the drama, without parting with some increasing tension. Intensity gradually increases, indeed, supported by a tense narrative rhythm, probably partly ruined by the unlikely final slackening. Toni Servillo, awarded as best actor at the latest Rome film festival, makes a substantial difference, being his main role fit for him: his performance is truly great, intense, perfectly able to render the inner drama of a man trying to overcome a painful past, which will never abandon him. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Toni Servillo e' ormai indissolubilmente legato a questi ruoli e a questi film che narrano di mafia, dramma e morte. E ci sara' anche un motivo, no? La regia e' meravigliosa e la trama e' sviluppata magistralmente. Ma il punto forte del film, secondo me resta sempre e comunque la presenza di Toni Servillo.
