      Stephen Romei The Australian It's a warm, enjoyable, funny and sometimes wise exploration of family, friendship, faith, fallibility and fatherhood in a double sense of the word. Rated: 3.5/5 Jun 3, 2016 Full Review Jake Wilson The Age (Australia) God Willing is neat, witty and somewhat complacent. Rated: 2.5/5 Jun 1, 2016 Full Review Piera Chen Hollywood Reporter God Willing is a comedy of manners with some fine acting by veterans of Italian cinema. Apr 12, 2016 Full Review Fernando Lopez La Nación (Argentina) The story flows coherently, with great rhythm and lots of humor, it even has some surprisingly poetic moments. [Full review in Spanish] Jun 30, 2016 Full Review Javier Ocaña El Pais (Spain) A film that tries to be liked too much, leaving reflection on the side. [Full review in Spanish] Jun 17, 2016 Full Review Alberto Bermejo El Mundo (Spain) The first part works but then it slowly becomes propaganda, making it feel too artificial.

      Ken R God Willing – Fresh and Observant Like a fresh breeze from a window that's been opened in a room full of stale air this debut motion picture from writer/director Edoardo Falcone begins and ends on a high note of originality. Not just a simple comedy but an astute observation of the maladies that so many suffer from in ‘modern' society. Hardly a wrong step is taken within its wise insights as we are taken by surprise through a diverse range of rapidly paced positive delights. Often on the way, nothing quite appears to be what it seems, but that could be from our own jaded expectations from so many other wannabe social comedies, which tend to fall into the trap of cheap slapstick. This is slick moviemaking with a cast that never puts a foot out of place. Maybe they knew they had a pearl of a script and a director they had full confidence in. Co-writer Marco Martani must also be congratulated along with cinematographer Tommaso Borgstrom. The brisk music score from Italian Rock star (Snaporaz) and winner of the Ennio Morricone award for film scoring; Carlo Virzi is another asset. A feel-good film with much to say, without at any time being manipulative. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/26/23 Full Review Pedro G Normalita película, una cinta agradable para pasar un buen rato. Presenta una historia bastante simple, que puede sacar algunas buenas risas y también hay algunos momentos que logra generar nervios. Sin embargo, no es tan memorable, es mas bien una película para ver en familia cuando no tengas nada que hacer. Por otro lado, las actuaciones son geniales, principalmente las de Alessandro Gassman, Marco Giallini, Laura Morante, etc. También hay que destacar el diseño de producción, que es de lo mejor de la película. En conclusión, una cinta bastante simple, con la que pasas un buen rato ya que tiene algunos chistes buenos que funcionan a mi parecer. La recomiendo. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/18/24 Full Review Audience Member A really solid and fun Italian comedy Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/24/23 Full Review paul d This is a funny, clever, enjoyable and humane film.
