Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Watching Youth, you'd swear Fellini had risen from his grave and returned to make another movie.
Fresh: Youth is a meditation on aging, on friendship, on love, loss, wisdom, disillusionment, pain.
Fresh: Sumptuous, sincere and built on aging bones, "Youth" is a wonder of a film, a look back at life's sprawling possibilities, dark corners and aspirations.
Rotten: In his culminating despair, Keitel says: "We're all just extras." You wouldn't want to be even that here ...
Best movie we've seen in years
This movie moved us in a most wonderful way. We are old, but we think it would have effected us when we were young. The metaphor of seeing life through different ends of a telescope has led us to long conversations. We will not forget this movie. We are also glad now to know of the composer of the wonderful score, David Lang.
I'm Still Thinking About It
I'm young, but this movie made me feel alive. I saw it a month ago, and I still think of it as fondly as I did when I left the theater.
Window into European film-making style
Paolo Sorrentino, on the heels of best foreign language film Oscar Winner The Great Beauty, brings together a great cast of actors into another setting of "great beauty" - this time a spa in the Swiss Alps. He presents the aging process by contrasting it with youth.
If you are interested in beautiful cinematography, an Oscar nominated classical song, an unabashed study of the human heart/soul/mind/body this may be the film for you. Like his previous effort, film-making style is European (read: slow-paced), as is the uncensored manner in which the human body is presented (unlike typical Hollywood).
Only four stars because Michael Caine's curmudgeonly Fred Ballinger should have shared more screen time with the other interesting characters.
