All Critics (15) | Top Critics (6) | Fresh (12) | Rotten (3)

  • In the complexly stoic Martelli and masterfully craggy, haunted Hauer, an alluringly opaque pas de deux of loss and uncertainty is wonderfully realized.

  • Ms. Scherson's style - backed wholeheartedly by the cool cinematography of Ricardo de Angelis - may value mood over information, but it's the perfect vehicle for a portrait of two damaged souls grasping for a security they no longer possess.

    September 6, 2013 | Rating: 4/5
  • a curiously effective coming-of-age tale

  • Il Futuro, aptly bereft of actual Italians, teases out the idea of thrown-off foreigners, bridged by fluid identities.

    September 3, 2013 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Alicia Scherson's enthralling Il Futuro asks the question no one wants to hear: How would you see the world after a personal tragedy?

  • Even though mood trumps character psychology, the entire cast provides mesmerizing, evocative performances.

Audience Reviews for Il Futuro

  • Sep 27, 2013
    In "Il Futuro," teenagers Tomas(Luigi Ciardo) and Bianca(Manuela Martelli) are orphaned when their parents die in a car accident in Rome, far away from their native Chile. Not helping matters is that they will have wait to see if they can get all of their parents' pensions. In the meantime, Bianca takes a job in a hair salon while Tomas auditions at a gym. It is there that he meets two personal trainers(Nicolas Vaporidis & Alessandro Giallocosta) who he in turn takes home with them. In return, they cook and clean. They also have a plan to take care of everybody's economic issues by using Bianca to insinuate herself with Maciste(Rutger Hauer), a former bodybuilder and B-movie star. Even though it has a plot as old as dirt and therefore more than its share of predictability, "Il Futuro" still has a lot going for it such as a neat turn from Rutger Hauer, erotic energy to spare, a twangy guitar score and a lovely dream logic, including a cameo from Cinecitta. In its own gentle way, the movie critiques the impatience of youth while also pointing out that there are no short cuts in life. Meanwhile, all of the characters are shown their possible futures, even if they are not aware of it at the time. Currently, Bianca is satisfied just being in a place where she is not stared at all the time while not yet realizing that smoking might stunt her growth.
