  1. Wears its art, as well as its heart, on its sleeve -- so much so that I feel guilty for not liking it more.

    It's a damn impressive trick to build a film around narrative frustration and not cause your audience to run out screaming.
  3. Exploring a specific generational moment in mid-century Italy's social weft, Amelio's family saga might be his grimmest film, if only for the tragic exploitation of fraternity.

    Problematically structured, overly protracted and lacking in narrative fluidity.
