Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Those undergoing some similar Catholic ferment might tune into its wavelength, otherwise it's a film to be admired from without, though swathes of choral music (an ill-advised Viscontian foray into Mahler excepted) convey a haunting, sepulchral vibe."
‑ Trevor Johnston, Time Out
"After promising much, it leads nowhere, either emotionally or spiritually."
‑ Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
"Absorbs for most of its two hours, only losing conviction in an underwhelming sign-off."
‑ Tom Dawson, Total Film
"for the two hours that Costanza's hauntingly earnest film lasts, and perhaps beyond, it is all too easy to forget yourself."
‑ Anton Bitel, Eye for Film
"Superbly shot in the white-walled no-man's-land of the monastery."
‑ Derek Malcolm, This is London
"Beautifully shot yet distant."
‑ Tom Dawson, Film4
"Brilliantly conveying the enormity of surrendering the self, this is a religious film with universal relevance."
‑ David Parkinson, Empire Magazine
"With a sterling cast headed by Christo Jivkov, breathtaking cinematography and a spellbinding accumulation of increasingly complex material that is treated with insight and clarity, In memoria di me is the best film of the Berlinale."
‑ Boyd van Hoeij,
"Patience will be rewarded."
‑ Anthony Quinn, Independent
"The imposing setting of the seminary is integral to the power of In Memory Of Me."
‑ Tom Dawson,
"It flirts with being a better film than it really is, but never convinces."
‑ Matt Bochenski, Little White Lies
