    The film comes and goes without commotion, but its magic settles on you as softly and as steadily as dust.

    The Wonders evokes many other films, but is utterly unique. It is like being privy to a marvelous story that Rohrwacher is telling herself.

    Ms. Rohrwacher’s strengths here are the tender intimacy of the performances, particularly those of the older child actors, and her gentle meandering, both narrative and cinematographic.

    If the film fails to deliver wonders, it does offer substantial pleasures.

    There's something refreshing, at times remarkable, about the sureness of the acting, and the filmmaker's touch.

    The Wonders is one of those films that's easier to experience than explain, which is almost always a good thing.

    An appealing yet oddly insubstantial work, like an early impressionist sketch in need of a little more focus, and perhaps a more suitable frame.
