  • Despite strong performances that go a long way to embedding the film in real, idiosyncratic life - and the warm-toned, polished photography of Michael Schindegger - too much of "L'Animale" feels too familiar.

  • Using a wide range of bold influences while carving its own way, Mückstein's latest film is invigorating and admirable.

  • What is presented is hugely entertaining and emotionally effective, but you sense it could have been something more

  • A cursory glance at the synopsis of L'Animale suggests an LGBT narrative that we're all too familiar with, but director Katharina Mückstein understands that an authentic coming of age story doesn't neatly resemble a cinematic narrative.

    Mar 27, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Although hardly breaking new ground, the second feature from Katharina Mueckstein takes an unfussy, clear-eyed approach to gender and sexual politics.
