  1. Slow Immersion [Joe]'s rating of the film Nostos: The Return

    Revisited this one for the first time in years. A wonderful sensual dream where you can almost sense the sun rays on your skin and the water dripping. I've watched a lot of survival/wilderness shows recently, and was yearning for a contemplative isolationist piece. Piavoli was one of the most important filmmakers I ever discovered, and although this is narrative/contemplative cinema, there are experimental fragments.

  6. José Neves's rating of the film Nostos: The Return

    Apparently the duration of a short film as well as a momentary impulsiveness are factors favoring Piavoli's cinema. Here, on the pretext of a free version of a part of Homer's "Odyssey", exists a decorative approach to a mythological realism with a preciousness "poetic" that verges the kitsch, which also affects a frankly redundant sound design.

  7. Ashley Shen Y J's rating of the film Nostos: The Return

    Dreams from childhood, memories of the brutality of the war, passionate love affairs, the yearning to return home, weaved together by his voyage on the sea with devouring loneliness. A masterpiece!

  9. Umberto L.'s rating of the film Nostos: The Return

    As usual, the best cinematic rendition of a great literary work comes with a film which is loosely based on the original material. 'Nostos' is just a little bit more stuttering on a technical level if compared to 'Il Pianeta Azzurro', but it certainly has its own share of high moments. It is a very contemplative and thoughtful work, the unmistakable style of Franco Piavoli is all there.
