All Critics (5) | Top Critics (1)

This isn't the Taviani brothers' strongest film to date, but it's one that feels uniquely at peace with the limitations of art and depiction in the face of oblivion.

... filmed with as much veneration as talent for directing actors. [Full review in Spanish]

December 6, 2017 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Wondrous Boccaccio sets out to tell five stories filled with love, lust, loss and loyalty, but instead falls flat.

Think of it as mildly diverting museum dioramas come to life and you'll do okay.

Here's a leaden affair with some lovely visuals and colorful gowns that seem just picked up from the dry cleaners. What's strange here is that the joy of Boccaccio's sagas still seep through: his high veneration of both love and sex in equal measure.
