This was a very thoughtful and out-of-the-box film. If you are an agnostic or a humanist or even a believer, this movie strikes a chord. It was humorous, thoughtful, and brilliant scenery.

Good film. Interesting plot. Well-directed. Amusing. A little confusing in parts, but overall it exceeds many of the films currently out there. I would give it 3.5 stars.

Boring boring boring, unless you enjoy watching a bunch of feeble old men in red coats. I would not give this even one star, but I had to. PASS!!!

Nanni Moretti's tender, funny and timely Vatican romp entertains, but lacks the director's customary bite. Full Review
Nanni Moretti's latest is a mixed bag that too often settles for easy, superficial laughs. Full Review
The New Yorker
What really grips the new movie, for all its amused glances at Swiss Guards and ceremonial pomp, is the prospect of a single soul in crisis. [9 April 2012, p.85] Full Review
New York Daily News
Meticulous staging and Piccoli's world-weary presence balance any silliness, making the issues here feel relevant and real. The method is not pointed political satire but gentle enlightenment. Full Review
Time Out New York
The satire becomes more scattershot and strangely cuddlesome (didja know sequestered holy men enjoy socializing and playing sports, just like us?), while the usually great Piccoli-saddled with a ridiculously contrived failed-actor backstory-comes off like an unholy mix of Gérard Depardieu and Robin Williams at their sad-puppiest. That's some cinematic blasphemy, Moretti. Full Review
