      Robert Abele Los Angeles Times In the complexly stoic Martelli and masterfully craggy, haunted Hauer, an alluringly opaque pas de deux of loss and uncertainty is wonderfully realized. Rated: 3.5/5 Oct 24, 2013 Full Review Noel Murray The Dissolve Il Futuro is a playful, soulful movie, affecting because it's populated by lost children who can somehow sense they're in a movie. Rated: 4/5 Oct 24, 2013 Full Review Jeannette Catsoulis New York Times Ms. Scherson's style - backed wholeheartedly by the cool cinematography of Ricardo de Angelis - may value mood over information, but it's the perfect vehicle for a portrait of two damaged souls grasping for a security they no longer possess. Rated: 4/5 Sep 6, 2013 Full Review Nicholas Bell While intriguing, and at moments, striking, there's an unfortunate distance from the events and characters in Scherson's film, and an undeniable indifference to what's unfolding before us. Aug 23, 2019 Full Review Jamie S. Rich Oregonian There are some interesting plot points and decent performances, particularly from Martelli, but the ending doesn't really bring Scherson's ideas together in an impactful way. Rated: 2/5 Nov 14, 2013 Full Review Travis Hopson One can choose to indulge in the sci-fi flights of fancy seeding Alicia Scherson's Il Futuro (The Future), or become engrossed in its mercurial, hypnotic theme of sexual discovery. Rated: 3.5/5 Nov 11, 2013 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member A predictable movie which depicts a depressing Rome. The storyline is weak, and really leads nowhere. Rutger Hauer performance though, albeit short, is remarkable. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/23/23 Full Review Audience Member Basada en "Una Novelita Lumpen" de Bolaño, este melodrama italiano-chileno parte de una premisa prometedora y naufraga cuando su directora atrapada en sus propios guiños estilísticos es incapaz de decidirse entre cerrar la trama o escapar vía una nebulosa alegoría filosófica. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/20/23 Full Review Audience Member A slow Italian drama worth watching for the sexy Martelli, and a ghostly Hauer. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Scherson's style is at once both gripping and unpretentious, leaving us with broken portraits of broken people. The lack of a classical climax only further bolsters the overall theme: waking reality always pales in comparison to the idyllic dream we all hold onto - that somehow we can go back and change the past, that somehow what we experience everyday cannot possibly be real. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review Audience Member Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member I would be interested in seeing this.
