This is a rich comedy that leaves you suspended, with all its hubbub, between wanting to laugh and wanting to cry.

Because it is a convoluted meditation on the guilt that often accompanies personal wealth, Valeria Bruni Tedeschi's wistful, self-effacing comedy is a movie that will push your buttons.

Gives Euro-style ambient guilt over money a sensitive and bittersweet (if slightly overlong) treatment that's worth a detour.

Seattle Post-Intelligencer

The contrast of the naive assurance of youth with the confusion and ambiguity of adulthood is sweet but simplistic and the wandering script hasn't much else to offer.

Her story construction -- blurring fact and fantasy and mixing scenes from different time periods -- is confusing and wearying.

Overlong and heavy-handed, semi-autobiographical dramedy.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

It's ultimately hard to care deeply about a silly, sheltered girl-woman who's taking an inordinately long time to learn that money can't buy happiness.

Long-winded, jokingly self-deprecating, and clichéd.

The movie can't quite overcome the barriers of class and privilege to make us care about Federica's predicament -- or to see that it's in any way unique to her.

[The main character] just isn't interesting in the slightest.
