Critics reviews

People hated this film. Really, really hated it. And so it was cropping up out of nowhere for me to take home and devour. I was confused by its sudden appearance but that night I wasn’t complaining. I was stupefied into speechlessness. “Youth Without Youth” was so beautiful it hurt. How had anyone not loved this?
