Justin Chang New Yorker In this trifling meta-comedy from the French filmmaker Christophe Honoré, the actress Chiara Mastroianni embarks on a strainedly whimsical personal odyssey to examine the legacy of her late father, the legendary Italian actor Marcello Mastroianni. May 30, 2024 Full Review Jordan Mintzer Hollywood Reporter As vain as that sounds, there is something sincere and emotional that manages, at least a couple of times, to pierce through the otherwise shallow depths of this movie... May 24, 2024 Full Review Peter Bradshaw Guardian Whatever feelings Chiara Mastroianni really has about resembling her father, and whatever her actual feelings about this possibly oppressive inheritance, they are clearly not going to be revealed in this all-but-unbearable, precious piece of whimsy. Rated: 2/5 May 22, 2024 Full Review Lisa Nesselson France24 There's a lot of bold experimentation afoot here... May 30, 2024 Full Review Josh Parham Next Best Picture A handful of decent contributions from the cast are nowhere near enough to save this laborious effort from suffocating under the weight of its own self-importance. Rated: 3/10 May 29, 2024 Full Review Sarah Manvel In Their Own League The concept is audacious, the plot is ludicrous and everyone involved with the exception of Mr Skinner is playing a version of themselves, but in spite of this self-indulgent silliness the movie works on its own merits. Miracles can and do happen. May 29, 2024 Full Review Read all reviews
