Movie Reviews

  • Matteo Garrone's new Pinocchio brings genuine emotion to one of the most ambitious film adaptations to date of Carlo Collodi's 1883 kid classic; At over two hours, the movie feels a little long; The ending, however, is pure magic
    by Deborah Young [The Hollywood Reporter ]
  • Matteo Garrone's live-action entry, while more faithful to Carlo Collodi's original novel, underplays the significant elements of cruelty, creating a child-friendly movie with its fair share of enchantment but curiously lacking in memorable highlights
    by Jay Weissberg [Variety ]
  • Matteo Garrone's adaptation of Carlo Collodi's story trembles with corporeal strangeness and unpredictability
    3 of 4 by Dan Rubins [Slant Magazine ]
  • it's so sweet, full of love, and utterly charming; A lovingly made take on Pinocchio, in thrall to goodness and kindness, with beautiful creature creations and eccentric humour. It lacks a little weight, but it brings big smiles
    4 of 5 by Alex Godfrey [Empire Magazine ]
  • director and co-writer Matteo Garrone embraces the grotesqueness and sentimentality of Collodi's 1883 story; "Pinocchio" is a thoroughly bizarre story; Matteo Garrone makes of it a weirdly satisfying spectacle
    4 of 5 by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian ]
  • a film that is moving, tender and sumptuous, but bears a sticky queasiness that some may find unbearable; This is a difficult and unpleasant watch; It's also often breathtaking; Roberto Benigni gives a characteristically warm and melancholic performance
    4 of 5 by Adam White [Independent (UK) ]
  • a delightful gothic fantasy that embodies the original's appeal; "Pinocchio" imbues its circumstances with a surprising degree of naturalism, thanks to the filmmaker's careful handling of practical effects that suit the unusual tone
    Review rate : B by Eric Kohn [IndieWire ]
