    ★★★

    L’Avventura has a terrific first act with a beautiful setting, a strong atmosphere and a sensual approach to it, but everything that came afterward was much less interesting and less memorable. The movie is technically polished and authentic, but it lacks in themes, leading to what is ultimately a very empty, slow movie, especially in its prolonged, boring second half.

    The Counterfeiters is competently made, very well acted and it has an interesting fact-based premise to it, but the execution is very weak, the film is never as sophisticated as it should have been and it’s just another standard WWII flick with nothing new to offer. Needless to say, its Oscar win was very problematic.

It is the one film which literally feels like a fairy tale and the tone shifts deftly from humorous and lightweight to darker,…
