Critic Reviews for Primo Levi's Journey
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.
Audience Reviews for Primo Levi's Journey
Aside from being narrated with bits from Levi's writings, this doesn't really have a lot to do with him. It follows his European trek and lacks a sense of coherence. Occaisionally entertaining and always well-meaning, but still a miss.
