Critic Reviews for The Confessions

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (4)

Those expecting the brand of hefty satire found in Andò's last film, Long Live Liberty, will have to wait.

September 1, 2017 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

The film's strongest suit is its elegant photography and confident mounting, but these virtues do little to offset the script's pervasive weaknesses.

July 7, 2017 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Andò's film feels entirely manufactured, distancing itself from its audience and blunting its points in the process.

July 6, 2017 | Full Review…

Director Roberto Andò takes the form of a classical whodunit and bludgeons it with naïve indignation and sanctimony.

July 4, 2017 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

By the end, the film itself becomes only philosophy and metaphor, the latter happening in a strangely mystical way that feels empty and confusing.

January 4, 2021 | Full Review…

Intrigue, economy and mysticism, reunited irregularly. [Full review in Spanish]
