Director Virzi has made moves that are worth your time: Caterina in the Big City, My Name is Tanino. This isn't one of them.
Sexy and grand, Tedeschi shines in the Cuckoo's Nest comedy of the early scenes, though the movie's anarchic spirit is sapped by the steadily mounting melodrama.
Tedeschi combines the raw sensuality of an Anna Magnani with the melancholic introspection of a Monica Vitti and is well worth discovering.
A vibrant and compelling look at friendship, freedom and the fine line between sanity and madness.
An energetic, visually attractive but ultimately irritating comedy-drama.
Virzì's film ultimately adds up to little more than the tale of two mentally unstable people finally coming to accept their insanity - an awfully thin arc on which to build an overextended road-trip movie.
... a moving and hilarious sociological study on mental institutions, social classes and family entanglements. [Full review in Spanish]
Still, the film, which cycles between madcap and melodramatic, offers a heady dose of female empowerment...
The substantial variety of shooting locations and supporting characters (including actual mental patients at Villa Biondi) keep the film feeling much shorter than its nearly two-hour running time.
Virzi doesn't seem to solve the movie's problem; i.e., defining a line between mad and sane behavior. Instead, he opts for a tale of sisterhood marked by intermittent charm and an always refreshing dash of Cuckoo's Nest rebellion.
It's funny at the beginning. And powerful at the end. And both the Italian actresses are wonderful and affecting.
A mild humor is the feeling that this film conveys, inspired, sometimes wrong, but with the same delirious beauty of its protagonists. [Full review in Spanish]
