Movie Reviews

Historical drama
Karen Potts | Lake Jackson, Texas | 11/27/2004
(4 out of 5 stars)

"For anyone who can sit through the nearly 4 hours of this movie, there is the reward of learning a lot about a man who is a shadowy historical figure to most of us. Mussolini is shown as a complex figure, torn between the demands of his job and thos of his family. Key figures in this drama are Edda, Mussolini's daughter and Count Ciani, her husband, played compellingly by Susan Sarandon and Anthony Hopkins. At the beginning, Ciani is Mussolini's right-hand man, but eventually his anti-Nazi views put him at odds with his father-in-law. Both Edda and her mother are loyal to their husbands, despite the men's attentions to other women. The path of WWII is traced, and emphasis is put on the uneasy alliance between Mussolini and Hitler. This is an interesting and compelling story."
Mussolini and I
Kenneth A. Perrone | Deer Park,NY | 03/13/2006
(2 out of 5 stars)

"My only major critisim is that it should have focused more on the politics of Ciano and his diaries. It spent to much time dancing on the outside of something he was an insider too. You learn nothing about pre war and wartime europe and italy except they lost the war and he was killed for betraying Mussolini."
Not Bad
James R. Smith | 03/14/2010
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Competently written, edited, and photographed, this film does its job of bringing history to life.

Good performances, on the whole, with Bob Hoskins as a surprisingly sympathetic Mussolini."
