Vincere Reviews

    The montage of actual historical footage & fictional scenes made the 1st half looking broken & disjointed. The 2nd half is better for being more on the fictional side. Some decent acting though.

    Vincere is one of the finest movies I've seen. I knew about Ida Dalser from my interest in Interwar Italy, but to see their love story in film was something . . . Quite different. The one word I would use to describe this film and its contents--its emotions, intrigue, Mussolini's early betrayal of his wife and son as he broke from the Socialists to join the war and climb onto Italy's national stage, and, of course, Fabrizio Costella's hauntingly accurate portrayal of the young DVX is simply: "Wow".

    ...mi aspettavo di più, nel complesso un film inferiore al solito Bellocchio, anche se la storia reale offre molti spunti. Non mi è piaciuta Giovanna Mezzogiorno.

    Incoherent start and zero dramatic tension.

    I really enjoyed this documentary, and even more interpretations, very intense.

    Well made movie. The story, unfortunately is depressing - and based on a true story

    I giggled, sighed, screamed, shouted, cried about injustices, read the biography of Mussolini, and left me wanting to see more Italian films. Vincere works on many levels that ultimately left me satisfied.

    An attempt quite valid, but not always exciting to bring a historical myth to the real world, and lead the viewer's eyes to an unknown history of ambition beyond measure.
