      Evan Williams The Australian There's darkness and poignancy in this charmingly irreverent escapade, and I was never sure whether to laugh or cry. It's all a bit of a dog's breakfast -- but what a friendly, frisky, lovable dog it is. Rated: 3.5/5 May 12, 2014 Full Review Jake Wilson Sydney Morning Herald A Castle In Italy interweaves reality and fiction in a highly self-conscious manner that is calculated to keep us guessing. Rated: 3.5/5 May 2, 2014 Full Review Jon Frosch The Atlantic A capably directed autobiographical chronicle by turns enlivened and bogged down by the kind of furious narcissism that is a trademark of French family/relationship dramas. May 28, 2013 Full Review Louise Keller Urban Cinefile There may be some truths in Valeria Bruni Tedeschi's semi auto-biographical film, but it is hard to have much affection for the disparate group of characters who inhabit it. It plays as a farce, when the subject matter is anything but funny May 19, 2014 Full Review Shaun Munro Film School Rejects Bruni Tedeschi's performance is the gemstone of the piece, elevating it considerably.

      Audience Member Interesting franco-italian human drama, with lovely cinema, great personalities and simple honest message/plot. Old school european stories for modern times Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review Audience Member Valeria Bruni Tedeschi is playing her own life in this movie: a sick brother, a rich family who cannot save a dime, a tormented soul and handsome lover who should give her a kid. Beautiful photography and wonderful acting. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member This film is a joy to life. Its protagonist, despite all the troubles that happen to her and to her family, keeps on living and enjoying life as much as possible. The script is the beauty of this movie, it is funny even though it is a dramatic movie. And the music selection is great! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/12/23 Full Review Audience Member Superbe film autobiographique qui allie sensibilité et humour, sans compter les magnifiques prises de vue de Paris. Un régal !
