  1. A fine and loving memorial that preserves his charm, his intellect and his splendid body of work.
  2. 80
    Nearly three and a half hours in length, but owing to its freedom of movement, the film feels weightless.
  3. The kind of full-length career portrait that every great actor deserves but rarely receives.
  4. From the fan's perspective this is sheer bliss, the next best thing to pouring a couple of glasses of grappa and sitting down with a bona fide film immortal (and world-class raconteur) for a long, intimate conversation.

    A long, warm, satisfying farewell encounter.
  6. 70
    By no means a great movie...the movie is most liable to rekindle warm gratitude for all the pleasure he gave us.
  7. 60
    A lovely homage to a charismatic star.
  8. 50
    Even Mastroianni cannot hold our attention for over three hours.

    An exhausting, overindulgent film, at least for American audiences...the experience feels like Grampa Simpson meets "Cinema Paradiso."
