Press

  • "The most charming, sparkling and playful documentary of the festival..."
    SUDDEUTSCHE ZEITUNG
  • "... full of visual inventions ****"
    Guiseppe Ferrante, LA REPUBBLICA
  • "irresistible"
    Alberto Crespi, L’UNITA
  • "...a convincing manifesto of resistance"
    IL MESSAGGERO
  • "...a breath-taking, stunning and poetic roadmovie experience..."
    Fiona Ehlers, DER SPIEGEL
  • "With a light touch. Known almost exclusively by their first names back home, Hofer and Ragazzi have become, with their high-profile films, in some ways Italy's first official gay couple."
    AUSTIN360.COM
  • "I can't help but root for Hofer and Ragazzi to stay in Rome. Italy Love It or Leave It shows them to be talented, convincing storytellers."
    AUSTIN CULTUREMAP
  • "...effervescent... Could make it palatable to a wider-than-arthouse audience..."
    John Anderson, VARIETY
