All Critics (6) | Top Critics (2)

Warmhearted and defiantly unsentimental, "Grandma, a Thousand Times" gains lightness from Teta's tart observations ... and the director's stylistic sprightliness.

Teta, Alf Marra is a loving portrait of Teta's aging process, at once funny and reverent, amiable and acute.
