Fifth about The Seventh

Youth (2015)

YouthYouth: director Paolo Sorrentino and cinematographer Luca Bigazzi portray some beauty in this film: mostly in the serene, solemn locations used but also, at times, in the human relations. However, for the most part, the film and the dialogue are artificial, smug, pretentious; so much so it’s hard to connect to most of the situations or characters presented. The cast, in general, through no fault of their own, comes up with superficial performances (the dialogue doesn’t help); it’s a pity, as it’s a great cast, but Michael Caine is the only one that comes up well.
