      Shane E It was mysterious and accidentally beautiful. It reminded me of what movies can be. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 04/15/24 Full Review elaine f A sweet, funny, sad movie. Great actors (although the Italian gang was a little stereotypical). We could see it again since. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/14/24 Full Review Marshall A film for the film lovers!! Parts of it reminded me of things Kubrick and Godard would do! Solid movie!! Rated 3 out of 5 stars 04/14/24 Full Review Marcos G A poetic reflection on our dreams, our failures, and the unavoidable obstacles placed before us. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 04/12/24 Full Review Regina I This is a beautiful film on every front: story, music, film photography. A perfect gem. Don't miss this! The ensemble is excellent. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/17/24 Full Review Cecelia B How often do we see a movie about poor Italian tomb robbers, with all the double dealing that implies by multiple layers of criminals and museum Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/16/24 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Randy Myers San Jose Mercury News Rohrwacher’s story nestles up to both ache and beauty and is as much about what’s been lost as what’s been found. It’s as transportative as a poetic work of Italian literature. Rated: 3.5/4 Apr 17, 2024 Full Review Jake Wilson The Age (Australia) Ultimately, the problem dramatised here is the same one faced by any modern artist: how do you retain a meaningful link to your predecessors while shaping something new? Rohrwacher’s answer is the film itself. Rated: 4/5 Apr 11, 2024 Full Review Wenlei Ma The Nightly (AU) There’s a precision to Josh O'Connor's balance of Arthur’s heavy moroseness with a spritely mischief. It’s a remarkable, complete performance and in Alice Rohrwacher, O’Connor has found the perfect directing partner. Rated: 4/5 Apr 9, 2024 Full Review Monica Reid Far Out Magazine This complicated, many-layered film doesn’t attempt to provide easy answers but succeeds in exploring intriguing questions in vivid detail. Rated: 4/5 Apr 18, 2024 Full Review Whang Yee Ling The Straits Times (Singapore) [Director Alice Rohrwacher] trusts the audience to catch on and succumb to the spell of enchantment. Rated: 4/5 Apr 18, 2024 Full Review Paula Arantzazu Ruiz Cinemanía (Spain) Alice Rohrwacher makes one of the most beautiful films of the year in which she uses0 formal experimentation and invites us to reflect on the exploitation and desecration of any link with the sacred. [Full review in Spanish] Rated: 5/5 Apr 17, 2024 Full Review Read all reviews
