      Empire Magazine Rated: 4/5 Apr 1, 2006 Full Review Ty Burr Boston Globe The strength of Good Morning, Night is not in winking meta-drama but in a clear-eyed, restorative realism that's occasionally broken by quiet flights of fancy. Jan 6, 2006 Full Review V.A. Musetto New York Post Rated: 3.5/4 Dec 6, 2005 Full Review David Lamble Bay Area Reporter The film offers apt comparisons to our current politics: the uncompromising elements of the environmental and animal rights movements on the left, and the anti-immigration vigilantes of the right. May 14, 2020 Full Review Daniel Eagan Film Journal International Despite good intentions, Good Morning, Night simply confirms what most viewers want to believe about themselves. Nov 14, 2005 Full Review Ken Fox TV Guide A thoughtful and ultimately chilling take on a tragedy that still has the power to disturb and divide. Rated: 3/4 Nov 11, 2005 Full Review Read all reviews

      david f This is a fictionalized treatment of a true story - the kidnapping of former Prime Minister of Italy, Aldo Moro - but it lacks the suspense and tension of a true crime story and goes off in some boring directions. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review nefasto r ...e alle volte mi piace pensare che sia andata veramente cosí... Struggente, e data la storia non poteva che essere altrimenti. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Although the subject is interesting (Aldo Moro's assassination by the Red Brigades in 78), the movie has plot gaps and fails to describe the events in detail. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/27/23 Full Review Audience Member Moving account of the kidnapping and execution of Aldo Moro by the Red Brigades. A reflection on the murder of an innocent man by fanatical idealogues, reminiscent of the beheading of Paul Berg in Iraq. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/26/23 Full Review Audience Member Un suceso histórico para Italia que yo no conocía. Me ha servido como documental. Pero flojea porque no hay mucho desarrollo de los secuestradores, a pesar de los buenos oficios de la actriz principal. Mucha floritura con Pink Floyd de fondo, pero poca densidad emocional. Una pena. De todas formas vale la pena verla. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/24/23 Full Review Audience Member A little aimless, but a good story. Lifted by Roberto Herlitzka's seriously touching performance as Aldo Moro. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/20/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
