Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A relatively minor film by Fellini standards, it's still smart, compelling viewing, and its conclusion -- an ambiguous tribute to the unifying power of the arts -- is as provocative as most of the director's films."
‑ Keith Phipps, AV Club
"...a true Fellini film with humorous and thoughtful phrasing by an excellent ensemble cast of unknowns"
‑ John A. Nesbit, Old School Reviews
"Fellini's films often seem lazy, but this one looks plain tired."
‑ Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader
"Orchesta Rehearsal is a witty reflection on the human condition--especially our penchant for stressing individual liberty over social good."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
