Presented in competition at the 77th Cannes Film Festival and currently in cinemas, has “Marcello Mio” by Christophe Honoré won over spectators? Verdict.

Between Chiara Mastroianni and Christophe Honoré, it’s a long story. With Marcello Mio, they are working together for the seventh time but for this project, the actress slips into the shoes of her own father, the Italian Marcello Mastroianni.

A story about an identity crisis and an affiliation, the film features the different actors in their own roles. Among them: Melvil Poupaud, Benjamin Biolay, Fabrice Luchini, Nicole Garcia and Catherine Deneuve, the mother of Chiara Mastroianni.

Presented in competition at the 77th Cannes Film Festival, Marcello Mio generally won over the press – an average of 3.7 out of 5 on AlloCiné – and divided festival-goers. How many spectators* came to the theater to discover it?

They liked

According to Rob Cowell (5 out of 5): “The film, with its unique blend of melancholy and lightness, manages to touch heartstrings. Leaving the session, I felt deeply moved and overwhelmed, marked by the beauty and emotion that emerge from this singular and original work. Honoré has a great idea about cinema and reminds us why we love cinema.

According to Lucas D. (5 out of 5): “Very successful comedy, led by a troupe of actors at the top of their art. A film that is aimed at both movie buffs and the general public !”

According to Chris (4.5 out of 5): “A very great Christophe Honoré who remains faithful to his universe. Chiara who plays the two roles of Chiara and Marcello Mastroianni is breathtaking. His resemblance to his father is truly uncanny. Deneuve who plays Deneuve is amazing in a role where she plays like never before with her image.”

According to Pagnolade (4.5 out of 5): “What a UFO! What a charming film! What a wonderful actress! Marcello Mio takes the time to follow the path of Chiara Mastroianni, in search of herself and her father, between the sun of Rome and the night of Paris. Soft and light film like a Daho song, but deeper than it seems.”

Cinema 28 (4 out of 5): “The scenario, a little strange, gives way to a simple and authentic emotion. We ultimately have a good time. The melancholy is softened by images of magnificent Paris and Rome and a perfect soundtrack. Ideal for calming anxieties, you will emerge a little repaired, without really knowing why.”

They didn’t like

According to Olivier K. (2 out of 5): “Starting from an interesting concept, this scenario does not derive a captivating plot, far from it. What remains is a sort of fetishistic reverie, in the footsteps of great films of the past. The film takes place half at night, and it is underlit, hence the softness of the image, which is quite ugly..”

According to PLR (2 out of 5): “Typical of the annoying and boring self. Certainly, for the relatively erudite film buff it will be an opportunity to remember some of the great films and roles of this Marcello, the real one (that is to say the father of the actress of the same surname and daughter of Catherine Deneuve also present ).

According to Mat Niro (1 out of 5): “Often excited by Christophe Honoré’s films, I found this one very navel-gazing and constantly highlighting our heroine’s neuroses. In addition, what is announced as a comedy is primarily aimed at an audience with solid cinematographic references (I was alone in the room) to raise a smile.”

According to Chillout And Relaxing (1 out of 5): “Ultimately very little emotion when watching this film which is navel-gazing and not very innovative to say the least. Apart from the boredom and length of this film. 2 hours to finally tell so little… A work which was surely intended as a tribute quickly turns into the antipathetic and the notion of clan. Nice disappointment.

According to Jean-Jacques D (0.5 out of 5): “No emotion and a lot of boredom while watching this navel-gazing fable of cinema, pseudo plagiarism of Fellini but it is not Fellini who wants.”
