The strength of Good Morning, Night is not in winking meta-drama but in a clear-eyed, restorative realism that's occasionally broken by quiet flights of fancy.
The race between her deep-set ideology and burgeoning conscience is a compelling one, but there are too many shortcuts -- from fevered dreams to convenient coincidences -- along the way.
Sober yet filled with fancy. There's a wistful aspect to the movie.
Part reality, part fantasy and all compassion. It is a strangely moving experience for the historically aware filmgoer.
Ms. Sansa is an actress of exquisite sensitivity.
The writer-director's inquiry into this tragedy makes for a moving and intelligent film, but the dark story never feels fully realized.
Despite good intentions, Good Morning, Night simply confirms what most viewers want to believe about themselves.
A thoughtful and ultimately chilling take on a tragedy that still has the power to disturb and divide.
A stunning achievement.
Director Marco Bellocchio takes a pragmatic and complex position
condenses a national tragedy into an intense domestic drama, and uses the image of a household in disarray to suggest the widening cracks of a country at odds with itself.
Buongiorno, notte fails even as a lyrical meditation on the kidnapping because the characters do not engage the audience at any point.
[font=Century Gothic]"Good Morning, Night" starts out with an apartment being rented to a young couple in Italy. It is 1978 and Christian Democrat leader Aldo Moro(Roberto Herlitzka) has been kidnapped by the Communist Red Brigades. This apartment will be where he is held captive for two months. Moro maintains a quiet dignity while he is being put on trial for his supposed crimes. [/font]
[font=Century Gothic]In "Good Morning, NIght", Marco Bellocchio does not use a purely realistic style to tell this very effective political thriller. The movie is told through the eyes of the sole woman of the cell, Chiara(Maya Sansa).(Apparently she is also the only one of the captors who has an outside life during the ordeal.) Through dream imagery, we get a very good idea of what Chiara's ideal world would be like - something akin to a workers paradise. The Brigades hoped Moro's kidnapping would lead to a general uprising... [/font]
