Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A capably directed autobiographical chronicle by turns enlivened and bogged down by the kind of furious narcissism that is a trademark of French family/relationship dramas."
‑ Jon Frosch, The Atlantic
"A Castle In Italy interweaves reality and fiction in a highly self-conscious manner that is calculated to keep us guessing."
‑ Jake Wilson, Sydney Morning Herald
"Sometimes playing it safe is the more dangerous route, and we wish that Bruni-Tedeschi had challenged herself to step out of the uber-privileged French/Italian haute bourgeoisie milieu where she clearly feels most comfortable..."
‑ Jessica Kiang, The Playlist
"There may be some truths in Valeria Bruni Tedeschi's semi auto-biographical film, but it is hard to have much affection for the disparate group of characters who inhabit it. It plays as a farce, when the subject matter is anything but funny"
‑ Louise Keller, Urban Cinefile
"Bruni Tedeschi's performance is the gemstone of the piece, elevating it considerably."
‑ Shaun Munro, Film School Rejects
"There's darkness and poignancy in this charmingly irreverent escapade, and I was never sure whether to laugh or cry. It's all a bit of a dog's breakfast -- but what a friendly, frisky, lovable dog it is."
‑ Evan Williams, The Australian
"Tiresome and insufferably self-regarding ..."
‑ Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
