Viva la LibertÓ offers a tame political fantasia where more lacerating laughs are needed.
January 12, 2015
Servillo charms in his dual turn, then takes it up a notch when one brother shows off his childhood knack for impersonating his look-alike.

In all, this film fares so-so. Sometimes, it's a mildly amusing diversion; sometimes, it's cold spaghetti.

An ingenious blend of high drama and surprising whimsy.

This here is a slightly sweet, slightly sour tale of brotherly love. Emphasis on 'slight.'

December 12, 2014
This set-up could be played as farce or satire or some pleasing combination of the two, but writer-director Roberto Ando, adapting his novel for the screen, chooses a formal, arm's length approach.

[A] stuck-in-neutral feature, which combines a vague commentary on Italian politics with a vague portrayal of middle-aged awakening.
November 8, 2014
For a story that is rooted in the here and now, it breaks free of the insular, becoming a light-footed fellow traveler with Ivan Reitman's optimistic Dave (1993), without a heavy or the shtick.

November 8, 2014
A smart, refreshingly whimsical and witty political satire that boasts winning performances by Toni Servillo in dual roles. It might as well be called Politics Italian-Style.

November 7, 2014
Haunting, surprising in its humor and beautifully served by the twin performances of Servillo.
November 7, 2014
Entertaining if cerebral fable will appeal to fans of Italian cinema but otherwise struggle to find an audience.
November 6, 2014
Wobbles between being wispily suggestive of finer existential meaning and generational commentary, and being basically a handsomely dressed-up "Dave" for post-Berlusconi Italy.
November 4, 2014
Politicians-replaced-by-doppelgńngers has long been a favorite comedy movie device - yet never has it been employed for more torturous faux-funny business than in Viva la LibertÓ.
October 31, 2014
This parody of Italian politics did not travel well across the Atlantic. I'll stick to the likes of "Thank You for Smoking" and "Dave."

It ultimately lacks the vision and conviction to honestly and meaningfully dissect a contemporary political movement's deep-seated structural malaise.
