Its quite impressive to see the different stages of a family, how it builds up and changes within itself. The story is marvelous, quite dramatic, although sometimes resembling a bit too much of a soap opera. Nevertheless, you'll sit up watching its 6 hours, and end up asking for a continuation.
View all The Best of Youth reviews
A historical saga set in Italy spanning from 1966 to 2003. “The Best of Youth” chronicles the life of an Italian family, the Caratis, but focuses primarily on two brothers, Matteo and Nicola, documenting their journey from the prime of their wild youth in the mid-1960s counter-culture, to parenthood and retirement in the early 2000s. The film aims to show the interaction of the personal and the political, the ways in which small events may become turning points in the important choices made by individuals

" Coming in at six hours and twenty-three minutes, this is by far the longest film I have watched. The fact that I made it through all six hours in one day and still felt engaged with the film should be a testament to the strength of this family epic. I'm impressed that the story didn't go down some of the more cliché paths that other Italian films about family and brothers have already taken. So, from that point it was rather refreshing.

Anticipation: Movies I'm looking forward to seeing (27 movies items)

"Viewed Part I: May 4 2015 Viewed Part II: May 14 2015 The most difficult thing to do in storytelling is to keep the audience engaged and interested without car chases, gunfights, and graphic sex. This movie managed to do that. Broken into two parts, the total length is somewhere around six and a half hours. But I didn't get bored watching it. The movie featured a lot of beautiful locations, and weaved in moments in Italian history into the story and the characters' lives. I would recommend "
