  • Soap opera elements are unavoidable, but the film has energy and spirit, thanks to Cox's bright, charming performance.

  • While Cox's typically sterling performance is not quite enough to rescue The Etruscan Smile from succumbing to bathos, it goes a long way toward making the film palatable.

    Oct 31, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Co-directed by two Israelis, adapted from an Italian-set novel, it's 100 per cent inauthentic.

    Times (UK)
    Top Critic
  • Capable performers throng these otherwise nondescript digital frames, vainly trying to persuade us we're not watching some rogue telefilm.

    Phil Hoad

    Guardian
    Top Critic
  • It's a quiet film, full of pain, love, life, and death that highlights generational divides. Brezis and Binnun offer little camera movement, making for simple shots that show the characters' emotional complexity.

    Oct 10, 2018 | Full Review…
  • Shamelessly sentimental, predictable and ham-fistedly written, it's worth watching for Cox's bravura performance with some of the best grownup actors alive.
