Presented in competition at the 77th Cannes Film Festival, the film “Marcello Mio” by Christophe Honoré with Catherine Deneuve and Chiara Mastroianni is not unanimously appreciated by festival-goers. In theaters today.

In Cannes, Marcello Mastroianni is celebrated by his daughter, Chiara Mastroianni. The film Marcello Mio by Christophe Honoré, presented in competition, offers a meta look at the Italian actor embodied by his own descendants. On screen, Chiara Mastroianni, alongside her mother Catherine Deneuve, wanders the streets of Paris completely dressed up. This all gives rise to a real identity crisis.

WHAT DOES THE PRESS THINK?

According to L’Obs (4 out of 5):Sensual and complicit, the staging accompanies these beloved bodies in this maze, a tribute to the seventh art in which it is so sweet to get lost.”

According to Le Parisien (4 out of 5) : “Between comic scenes and nostalgic songs, Marcello Mio speaks about mourning with grace, poetry and a lot of self-deprecation.

According to Les Inrockuptibles (4 out of 5):Set between a scene of a fountain and a beach (…), and traversed by the Seine, Marcello Mio composes the story of a moving amniotic rebirth.

According to Télérama (4 out of 5):Christophe Honoré warms our hearts and gives us momentum with this fantasy that is as funny as it is poetic.”

According to Le Point (4 out of 5):A lovely comedy carried with great charm and fantasy by Chiara Mastroianni who dons the costume of this father who is omnipresent in her life and her dreams.

According to Le Monde (3 out of 5):The funniest remains Catherine Deneuve who, with an air of not touching it, does not hesitate to dent the image of Marcello and set the record straight. The rest left us doubtful, like the spectators who watch, without being invited, a group of children playing at scaring each other.

According to Libération (3 out of 5):Despite a certain inspiration behind its scenario, which sees the actress in the midst of an identity crisis reincarnating her missing father, the Frenchman’s film does not go beyond society vaudeville.”
