  • Makes you understand these spiky relationships in a visceral way. Even minor characters, with their strengths and faults and fits of irrationality, emerge as complicated, three-dimensional beings.

  • Chiara Mastroianni's performance is the only saving grace of this tedious family drama.

  • Christophe Honor's character study is one monolithic mash note for Chiara Mastroianni.

    August 18, 2010 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Lena settles into a '70s American groove, with Mastroianni making an all-in, glam-free performance look easy.

    August 17, 2010 | Full Review…
  • Chiara Mastroianni is nothing short of a revelation as a discombobulated mom of two, dealing with well meaning but nosy parents, sibling rivalry and her estranged husband whom she can't ever get over.

    March 21, 2021 | Full Review…
  • This study of a difficult woman, without a truly electrifying actress in the role, never catches fire.
