A Richly Woven Tapestry
27 June 2008 | by (usa) – See all my reviews

Yes, the film is somewhat clumsy at times and some of the performances are a little stiff, but the overall effect here is one of poignancy and sentimentality, even to the point of being whimsical, and I'm not so sure I'd like to criticize that.

Even if you don't want to hear it, sometimes it's encouraging if someone points out that it all, somehow, works out in the end. Even a nihilist like me can appreciate that thought.

I often think people are too quick to find fault with movies. If they'd just sit back and allow the film to wash over them like a gentle wave, they might just get more out of it.

With BELLA CIAO, I did just that. I kept an open mind. I allowed the filmmaker to tell his story and I enjoyed the movie.
