  1. Il secondo maestro del revolver's rating of the film The Family Friend

  2. Bonnet Michel's rating of the film The Family Friend

  3. Daniel S.'s rating of the film The Family Friend

    **1/2. No doubt that Paolo Sorrentino's got a touch, a style that's easily recognizable, like Woody Allen's or Alfred Hitchcock's. The film presented can result in a masterpiece like 'The Great Beauty' (2013) or simply in a good movie like this one. The main character Geremia De Geremei is very interesting but the other characters unfortunately aren't. Almost already forgotten.

  4. Khach Aloyan's rating of the film The Family Friend

  5. MarcelVonPure's rating of the film The Family Friend

    the ending feels a bit unearned and the soundtrack is a contextual failure, but...an altogether interesting experience.

  6. El Biffo's rating of the film The Family Friend

    After I've watched a Sorentino film, I feel as though I've just had a 5-course meal at Chez Panisse, satisfied in a way that I won't soon forget.

  7. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film The Family Friend

    Interesante película, a veces rara, absurda, curiosa. Hay cabos sueltos. Parece como una especie de los Coen, solo que el idioma de Sorrentino está menos a la comedia, y en lugar de eso al relato plano de un personaje desagradable. El estereotipo de usurero aquí es cautivador, tanto por su fisionomía como por su actitud. La película crea leves giros de acción, pero no existe drama. Todo fluye sin presión.

  8. Fabio Di Felice's rating of the film The Family Friend

    Forse il meno bello tra i film di Sorrentino, che rimane comunque una bomba. Fantastico il personaggio mefistofelico del protagonista: vizioso, profittatore, un mostro -e non solo fisicamente- eppure quasi commovente per come il destino gli si è accanito contro. Bellissima Laura Chiatti e al solito magistrale il montaggio audio e la scelta dei brani che accompagnano il film. 3* e 1/2.

  10. Joseph Wallace's rating of the film The Family Friend

    Why does this feel more like a debut? Not as interesting as his other films

  11. Larrotino's rating of the film The Family Friend

    I like the way Sorrentino use the music like counterpoint of the video

  12. Ademption's rating of the film The Family Friend

    A trollish moneylender conducts his trade with menace. The soundtrack is great.
