Movie Info

Made In Italy is a heart-warming father son story set in glorious Tuscany about bohemian London artist Robert (Liam Neeson), who returns to Italy with his estranged son Jack (Micheál Richardson) to make a quick sale of the house they inherited from his late wife. Neither expects to find the once beautiful villa in such a state of disrepair.... Renovations go badly, with father and son soon finding themselves at odds. Robert's comical lack of DIY experience leads him to seek help from some colourful locals including the no nonsense Kate (Lindsay Duncan), an ex-pat making her living selling villas who quickly captures his attention. For Jack, the state of the house seems to mirror his search for memories of happier times with his mother. He soon falls for Natalia (Valeria Bilello), a vivacious young Italian chef, who restores both body and soul with delights from her local trattoria -- until the pair find their developing relationship in jeopardy from Natalia's jealous and threatening ex-husband. As Robert and Jack painstakingly restore the villa to its previous glory, they also start to mend their relationship. The future may now look quite different and surprise them both.

Critic Reviews for Made in Italy

All Critics (62) | Top Critics (12)

A treacly slog with a screenplay that fails the storied talent of its elder lead, and the promising gifts of his younger counterpart.

Liam Neeson and his real-life son Micheál Richardson bring a personal sense of love and loss to this otherwise mawkish tale of grief and healing, Italian style.

I can only hope this real-life bonding exercise was more satisfying than what appears on screen.

August 12, 2020 | Rating: 1.5/5 | Full Review…

For a movie that's supposedly meant to lift us off our couches and set us down in a verdant dreamscape, this limp foreign-soil fantasy from James D'Arcy doesn't come close to getting the job done.

If it were any less original it'd be its own sequel.

August 9, 2020 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

With a gorgeous location, pretty people and familiar story, "Made in Italy" is too gentle to make an impression.
