      Fernando F. Croce Film Comment Magazine As the protagonist's solidarity is put to the test, however, Terraferma slides from detail-rich fable to Important Issue statement, its symbolism growing leaden and its characters shedding their eccentricities for masks of nobility. Nov 4, 2013 Full Review Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer Terraferma offers a sun-splashed meditation on compassion, tradition, tolerance, and generational change. Rated: 3/4 Sep 13, 2013 Full Review Stephanie Merry Washington Post For the most part the multi-faceted story works. Rated: 2.5/4 Sep 5, 2013 Full Review Nicholas Bell IONCINEMA.com There's a poetic rhythm to the arresting visual compositions that couch on magical realism, and its bittersweet melancholic tone, no matter how bluntly delivered, is still an effectively realized portrait of tenuous humanity. Aug 22, 2019 Full Review John Bleasdale CineVue Terraferma is an angry and heartfelt denunciation of the situation, but despite a beautiful opening sequence, the film sinks beneath its crude characterizations, melodramatic twists and the mawkish simplicity of its own politics. Rated: 2/5 May 30, 2019 Full Review Jo-Ann Titmarsh CineVue Whilst Terraferma is honourable in its intentions, it falls down in terms of quality. Rated: 2/5 May 30, 2019 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member good drama set on the island of Linosa Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member A look at the plight of refugees fleeing by boat through the eyes of a small fishing community on a tiny Sicilian island. Absolutely stunning cinematography in this thought-provoking film. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Audience Member Un film che ha vinto pure qualche premio e non si capisce bene il perché. Non che sia brutto o fastidioso, ma semplicemente non degno di particolare nota. La storia dei migranti, la trama e la caratterizzazione dei personaggi sono poste e in modo troppo sempliciotto per poter rendere questo film interessante. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/29/23 Full Review Audience Member Entre seguir a lei do mar, que manda que qualquer um em perigo seja resgatado, e a lei dos homens, que proíbe que civis façam o salvamento, e os responsabiliza criminalmente, duas idéias que parecem ser representadas por gerações diferentes, o que fazer? O filme me lembrou esta notícia aqui: http://www.portugues.rfi.fr/europa/20141028-gra-bretanha-nao-participara-de-operacoes-de-resgate-de-clandestinos-no-mediterraneo Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/12/23 Full Review Audience Member The film cinematography and locale are lovely to look at! Story could have been better but it manages to keep me engaged so all in all not a bad way to spend some time! Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member watching this movie makes me wanna go on a boat to the ocean smh Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/23/23 Full Review Read all reviews
