April 3, 2019
Sacro GRA peers into a silent world and finds the unseen and unheard of its all encompassing vitality.
March 7, 2019
Taking in a vast and diverse range of eccentric characters, Sacro GRA amounts to little more than a collage of individual sketches that fails to ever coalesce into something greater than the sum of its parts.
November 22, 2017
Taken on its own merits, Sacro GRA suffers from a structural slackness, as though Rosi's expansive manoeuvre was a bridge too far for the filmmaker.
August 4, 2017
No matter what Rosi puts on screen in this film, it's always beautifully framed and shot with an eye for color.
June 27, 2016
It's a small film with big ideas, and certainly the most interesting documentary about a highway you're likely ever to see.

A fun and insightful slice of Roman life. Next up, M25: The Movie?

Sacro GRA is the sort of beautifully observed, leisurely paced verité documentary that gets made all too rarely now.
November 7, 2014

Rosi seeks out the forgotten folk who the commuters leave behind: an eccentric bunch that includes prostitutes, paramedics and parasitic weevils.

Sacro GRA is a technically well-made film, but it may require audience members to be open-minded to enjoy it.

An outstanding and tender film.
September 9, 2013
It's great that a documentary has broken through and won the Lion, but we're a little baffled that a film as unremarkable as this one was the one to do so.
September 7, 2013
Sacro Gra's charms have much to do with the director's spot-on selection of a brace of engaging or kooky characters from what must have been dozens of potential candidates.
September 7, 2013
Rosi's roam on the orbital road of the title is a fascinating, witty and meditative piece which delivers an alternative view of Rome, far from the postcard locales of the Coliseum and La Dolce Vita.

The idea remains more absorbing than the final product.
September 7, 2013
