Reviews for this film from our members:

  • Marco Albanese @ Stanze di Cinema [Italian]
    • Excerpt: Abbandonata la politica italiana, al centro del travolgente film sul divo Giulio Andreotti, nel nuovo This must be the place ci regala il più dolce dei suoi ritratti.
  • Luke Bonanno @
    • Excerpt: You’ve got this pained mess of a stunted man trying to find some justice for old concentration camp atrocities. And you’ve got the Talking Heads song of the same name, which pervades this film in various incarnations.
  • Enrique Buchichio @ [Spanish]
    • Excerpt: Tanto el paisaje como los encuentros entre seres humanos, aun los más breves, exhiben rasgos de extrañeza, melancolía y belleza que recuerdan al cine norteamericano de Wim Wenders. Sean Penn está, como casi siempre, excelente.
  • Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: Sorrentino and Penn have taken a bizarre leap together and uplift all of us in their wake.
  • Kimberly Gadette @ doddle
    • Excerpt: Sorrentino delivers a gloriously magical film, a road movie crossed with a fiftysomething coming-of-age piece, with side trips to the land of the eccentric.
  • Piers Marchant @ Sweet Smell of Success
    • Excerpt: Sean Penn as a Robert Smith clone is one thing, but how in the hell do Nazis end up getting involved?
  • Paulo Peralta @ CinEuphoria [Portuguese]
  • [New – 6/27] | Gregory J. Smalley @ 366 Weird Movies
    • Excerpt: The reason to see “This Must Be the Place” is Sean Penn’s high-concept, high-pitched performance as an emotionally stunted man-child serving a self-imposed sentence of early retirement while living off royalties from his pop star youth.
  • Frank Swietek @ One Guy’s Opinion
    • Excerpt: A picture that’s both charming and touching.
