    ★★★★

    the three leads are truly excellent, fully committing to giving thoughtful, emotionally complex comedic performances that really sell this (honestly one of my favourite bergman performances).... entertaining, funny, subtly smart look at the changing social mores of the late '60s through an easily digestible filter

    ★★★

    disappointingly heavy-handed compared to the other de sica films i've seen, but his distinctive passion and intelligence still find a way to shine through

    it would be nice to have a POC best actress winner for a character that doesn't exist to provide redemption for a racist white man :)

    ★★★★½

    a career-best performance from frances, in a role of depth and authenticity that she has very rarely (maybe never?) been given.... zhao has such an abundance of empathy and care for her characters and their daily lives, and it’s immediately beautiful and moving to watch.... she merges the personal and political so well, and the result is a much needed look at the difficult times we’re living in that we don’t see enough
