  • Sironi's film effectively blends the warm-blooded emotional stakes of classic Italian melodrama with the cooler, more rigorous language of new Eastern European cinema.

  • Essentially a two-hander, Sole feels skimpy and underpowered at first, but it blossoms into a moving, quietly absorbing character study.

  • [A]s a meditation on how unremarkable human life can be and the peace that allows, Sole works because it doesn't feel the need to provoke.

  • Sole is an emotional and untraditional love story with very strong performances by stars Sandra Drzymalska and Claudio Segaluscio.

  • Sironi's paired character study leaves one imaginative of the life the two could lead if they only had the ability to seize it.

    Oct 25, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Sole is a reserved film, its rhythm controlled by silent, hyper-composed, mostly still shots, ut the otherwise flat narrative is stirred by several nearly imperceptible movements.
