Italian documentary filmmaker Davide Ferrario, who specializes in what he calls "on the road" documentaries, decided to retrace Primo Levi's steps in modern Europe. It was a wise choice.
Primo Levi's Journey is a rather unfocused but ultimately provocative portrait of Eastern Europe.
The film lacks a certain coherence, and Levi -- one of Italy's most important postwar writers -- is mostly relegated to an excuse for a sociopolitical travelogue.
Vividly impressionistic and delightfully curious.
A profound meditation on the unevenness of history, reminding us -- as Faulkner once remarked -- that the past not only isn't dead, it isn't really past at all.
It's told in such a messy and questionable way to unintentionally diminish Levi's more striking and dark tale.
If some of its connections remain obscure, its storytelling is both sinuous and resounding. History, memory, forgetfulness%u2014all comprise the present.
If one artist is deserving of a documentary account of his story, it's Italian author Primo Levi.
For filmgoers who value something fresh and original on the big screen, the documentary delivers.
Travelogue is exquisitely shot and the dark poetry of Levi's words, read at intervals throughout the film, is brought to haunting life by a suitably weary-sounding Chris Cooper.
A thoughtful and insightful Italian documentary that retraces writer Primo Levi's 1945 trip from Poland to Italy after he was liberated from Auschwitz; it contains a fascinating glimpse of post-communist Europe.
