Youth (La Giovinezza) review – dazed and confused

31 January 2016 12:00 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Michael Caine and Harvey Keitel bring the benefit of age and experience to a misfiring tragi-comedy

Italian writer/director Paolo Sorrentino’s first English-language feature This Must Be the Place (which preceded the Oscar-winning The Great Beauty/La Grande Bellezza) was an awkward affair that cast Sean Penn as a Robert Smith goth-a-like living in Ireland, embarking upon an American road trip in pursuit of a Nazi war criminal. Really. Youth is altogether more assured, although nonetheless strange – a hazy meditation on love and death interspersed with weirdly melancholic celebrity cameos. It plays out in a glamorous hotel-cum-health-spa at the foot of the Alps, where retired composer Fred Ballinger (Michael Caine) refuses a royal invitation to conduct his popular score Simple Songs, while film-maker Mick Boyle (Harvey Keitel) assembles a group of young writers to compose his film “testament”, the ominously entitled Life’s Last Day.

Youth May Be Uneventful, But It’s Still Mesmerising

29 January 2016 2:05 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Studio Canal

Rating: ★★★★

At the age of 45, Paolo Sorrentino should have every right to still be regarded as an ‘up and coming’ auteur, with us happily forgiving his flaws on account of his relatively young age and evident desire to make beautiful, mesmerising movies. That’s how I felt until the pretty but limp This Must Be The Place, but now that he’s made The Great Beauty and has a deserved Oscar in the glass cabinet, he’s now inevitably going to be held to higher standards. While Youth isn’t as ambitious or spectacular as his crowning achievement so far, it calmly continues to showcase his passion and flair for visual storytelling.

Youth follows the late-life crisis of retired and revered composer Fred Ballinger (Michael Caine), who is spending time in an Alpine spa hotel with a ragtag assortment of other guests who are ailing either creatively and »

'Devastated' Friends Remember 'Fearless' Base Jumper Katie Connell, 30, Killed After Parachuting off Bridge: 'We Talked About Death'

28 January 2016 8:15 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Mary "Katie" Connell, a Base jumper whose tragic final leap was recorded by her companion's GoPro last week, was the kind of person who would "sneak into your heart and never leave," her close friend, Leigh Scarber, tells People. "I am devastated," Scarber says. "Her car is still at my house and her things are untouched in her room. Her room still smells like her: pleasant and soft, like fresh laundry." Connell was an avid Base jumper who died during a jump from Bixby Bridge in Big Sur, California, after missing her landing target and getting swept away by a wave. »

Youth review – life and death as seen from a luxury hot tub

28 January 2016 7:30 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

In Paolo Sorrentino’s beautiful but underwhelming drama, Michael Caine and Harvey Keitel are a pair of old friends steeped in ennui and torpor during a spa break in Switzerland

This new film from the Italian writer-director Paolo Sorrentino is an entertaining but minor work, another of his angular, intensely controlled comedies of manners, this one forever breaking into bizarre, new-realist tableaux of ugly people in various states of undress. It’s the kind of stylishness that risks depleting substance and, like his other English-language film This Must Be the Place (2011), it is eroded by Sorrentino’s weakness for rock star cameos. Just occasionally, it feels like a 124-minute Rolex commercial. But there is always such superb poise.
