      Reviewer Subtitles went so fast you couldn't keep up or see the movie shots Rated 1 out of 5 stars 12/08/22 Full Review Roxanne It was BORRRRINNNNNNGGGGGG It should have English voice overs at the very least rather than subtitles. Not one single scene has more than a photo of never see him speak. Hard to stay awake. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 11/22/22 Full Review Ranny L Salvatore: Shoemaker of Dreams is a striking documentary that's inspiring and innovative. It welcomes you into a creative world that shaped multiple aspects of life today. Salvatore: Shoemaker of Dreams follows the life of Salvatore Ferragamo, the incredible shoemaker with insane intellectual talent. By the age of 16 he was off to America where his career exploded as he built a huge reputation in the film business. Although he provided shoes for some of the biggest icons in history, life wasn't always the easiest for him. However, Salvatore Ferragamo remains one of the most loving, caring and well-known shoemakers to this day. I really enjoy the storyline of this film; it's not only extremely inspiring, but educational as well. It shows viewers how you can do anything that you put your mind to. I also appreciate the fact that it includes interviews with people who know Ferragamo and understand his culture. It really emphasizes the importance of his childhood and how that shaped him. Additionally, the structure of the film is really helpful. Using actual video clips from Ferragamos life, plus close friends and family members that explain his history is a really nice feature. This allows us to view Ferragamo on a more personal level. Plus, the quality of the more dated clips still have great sound and picture quality, which gives it a modern feeling, while remaining authentic to the time period. I also enjoyed the soundtrack and background music. The music is subtle and really makes a difference. In most of the montages, there is light piano playing in the background which elevates the film and really sets the mood/tone. The message of Salvatore: Shoemaker of Dreams is to always follow your heart, passions and dreams. I give Salvatore: Shoemaker of Dreams 4 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 12 to 18, plus adults. You can watch Salvatore: Shoemaker of Dreams in select theaters now. By Mikella G., KIDS FIRST!

Rated: 3.5/4 Nov 29, 2022 Full Review Thelma Adams AARP Movies for Grownups With great flair and storytelling skill, Guadagnino shows the single-minded drive that made this innovator immortal. Rated: 4/5 Nov 10, 2022 Full Review Sarah Vincent Cambridge Day The film is best when hearing Ferragamo, who died in 1960, tell his own story through archived audio and home movies. Rated: 2.5/4 Aug 16, 2023 Full Review James Verniere Boston Herald Not much more than an ad for the House of Ferragamo. Rated: B- Dec 9, 2022 Full Review Robert Denerstein Denerstein Unleashed It's difficult not to fall under the glamorous sway of the stars who wore Ferragamo's shoes: Gloria Swanson, Greta Garbo, Mary Pickford, Joan Crawford, Marilyn Monroe, and Audrey Hepburn among them.
