Film Review: Youth

DIRECTOR: Paolo Sorrentino STARRING: Michael Caine, Harvey Keitel, Rachel Weisz, Paul Dano, Alex Macqueen, Ian Keir Attard, Adam Jackson-Smith, Loredana Cannata, Madalina Diana Ghenea ITALY/FRANCE/SWITZERLAND/UK 2015


Not everyone will enjoy Paolo Sorrentino latest masterpiece, Youth is not here to please the pseudo intellectuals. Youth is a fascinating and masterful film, an amazing ode to cinema as a form of art. Sincere and painfully melancholic, Youth’s sublime and unique sharp dialogues give a whole new dimension to this way of not having some sort of plot a new meaning, the characters are just a piece of puzzle of this dazzling and unfulfilling intoxicating little thing called life. Seinfeld was a comedy about nothing, plotless Youth is a painful look into the characters past, present and future. Harvey Keitel and Michael Caine are too damn good, Rachel Weizs trainwreck instability is priceless, and that Maradona character is gold.
