While Bertolucci has made many more notable movies, you have to admire his constant quest for a glimmer of truth.
It's a pleasing if minor piece of work, like a semi-precious stone that you'd still keep.
The film is oddball and sad, with occasional touches of that characteristic Bertolucci forlorn dignity. You know it's a goodbye.
An uplifting coming-of-age drama that marks Bernardo Bertolucci's return to filmmaking ...
It may not be Bertolucci's most dynamic film but the quiet sense of hope that he finds makes it an unexpectedly poignant chamber work.
Script and acting are flawless - but set beside Bertolucci's glory years (The Conformist, Last Tango In Paris, Novecento) it all feels a bit slight.
This disappointing clautrophobic melodrama, about the bond between half-siblings, recalls better initimate works by Bertolucci, but it's too conventional and familiar to merit attention.
There is certainly some promise for a return to form, but it was just too meager a project in the context of the director's earlier heavy-weight works.
