I left the cinema feeling rather frustrated because the potential for a great film was so clearly there.

Such a minimalist drama that, if not for the actors, we'd barely care if father and son ever reconcile.

Both Rossi and Charlotte Rampling, as the mother of another young patient, do fine work. But the only surprises come at the end, too late to move us the way they should.

The kind of quietly unassuming tear-jerker that works its way into your heart despite the occasional cries of protest emanating from your head.

The Keys to the House is a compelling Italian drama about a father-son reunion and the bravery needed to open one's heart to another.

Amelio, one of the true modern heirs of the great Italian neo-realist tradition, is a filmmaker of great subtlety, emotional precision and socio-psychological acumen.

Feels as if its being telegraphed from a cosmic fugue state, and means to get (and stay) beneath the skin.

Amelio intelligently steers clear of lachrymose speeches, swelling orchestral music, and cheap redemption and instead probes away at the ambivalent feelings of parents towards their handicapped off-spring.

Amelio's camera captures with subtlety and without sentimentality the state of mind of a parent for whom every child running freely in the park is a painful reminder of another's limitations.

We always understand why these people feel the way they do and, remarkably, believe we well might act the same were we in their shoes.
