  1. 10
    In the end, Malena is an unlikable and foul farce, unworthy of Tornatore's previously gentle touch.
  2. 20
    Giuseppe Tornatore has long been a master of cheap sentiment ("Cinema Paradiso," " The Legend of 1900"), but his latest film is his most shallow, reprehensible exercise in nostalgia to date.
  3. Feels more like "Porky's" with marinara sauce than "Summer of '42."
