Robbie Collin Daily Telegraph (UK) Luchetti and his cast build their mystery with great delicacy and style, by turns absorbing the viewer in the drama of the moment and holding them at a glassy remove. Rated: 4/5 Nov 22, 2020 Full Review A.A. Dowd AV Club The Ties, which Luchetti adapted from a Domenico Starnone novel, is so concerned with its big picture... that it largely neglects to explicate the feelings of its characters, even when they're, say, melodramatically leaping out of windows. Rated: C+ Sep 12, 2020 Full Review Kevin Maher Times (UK) It's like the Italian version of Marriage Story, only stretched out over 40 years. Rated: 5/5 Sep 3, 2020 Full Review Irene Crespo Cinemanía (Spain) Alba Rohrwacher [is] one of the best European actresses right now. [Full review in Spanish] Rated: 4/5 Oct 22, 2021 Full Review Manu Yáñez Fotogramas The film evokes Ingmar Bergman. [Full Review in Spanish] Rated: 3/5 Oct 18, 2021 Full Review Ayeen Forootan In Review Online The Ties does little to distinguish itself in any singular way, failing even to craft substantive characters that might have cut through the film's obvious derivative resolve.
