New York Times - 04/25/2006
"A Freudian operating in a Marxist political context, Mr. Bellocchio uncovers the infantilism that continues to rule adult desires, creating a cinema that is at once gleefully anarchic and coldly analytic."
Premiere - 06/01/2006
4 stars out of 4 -- "[The film] remains startling not only for its portrayal of perverse familial dysfunction, but also for its assured, original style and convention-defying structure."
Innovative Italian director Marco Bellocchio's debut feature, which stars THE LEOPARD's Lou Castel, is a nuanced, intimate portrait of a dysfunctional family that immediately established him as a distinctive, thoughtful, and socially aware talent.
