One of the best films of the year
There is a sense of nostalgia in the films of Paolo Sorrentino. The nostalgia often comes across as a sense of regret for the loss of innocent love experienced by the central characters during their youth. Such a regret can easily fills one’s heart with melancholy but Sorrentino seems to have mastered the art of mixing gravity with levity. His films can be both serious and farcical at the same time and that’s why they are more complex than what they prima facie appear. Youth is no different.
Here is a film about larger-than-life oldies pining for their long past golden years of youth. We have a retired conductor (Michael Caine), a self-indulgent filmmaker well past his prime (Harvey Keitel), an insecure actor (Paul Dano), a mountaineer, a Miss Universe with brains, and an overweight footballer (most probably based on Maradona). There is a lively cameo from Jane Fonda who plays a legendary actress from Hollywood and then there is Rachel Weisz who plays the conductor’s daughter.
Among other things (which certainly include Sorrentino’s brilliant direction), it is the performances of Caine and Keitel that makes it a treat to watch. While Keitel steals every scene that he is a part of, Caine delivers a deeply nuanced performance around which the entire movie revolves. Youth is nowhere near being Sorrentino’s best but it is certainly one of the best films of the year.

Masterpiece of crap
Youth is ‘an artsy movie’. This means that it has all artsy movie clichés, as follows: no structure (just a bunch of random scenes glued together with a duct tape), no characters (talking mannequins put in random places), no plot, no joy, no substance. It’s just sad and insanely boring set of shots that vary from mildly annoying to flat out disgusting.
Apparently it was supposed to be a study of aging. The movie presents a bunch of ‘secondary characters’ (young aspiring filmmakers, conductor’s daughter, miss universe with disgusting silicon tits, queen’s emissary, some young actor, a freaking buddhist monk) and it throws this interesting pack into beautiful hotel located in Alps to sit and talk about life and death. The main characters are 2 old farts. One grumpy ex – orchestra conductor and second retiring filmmaker. One is old and bitter and he doesn’t want to perform anymore, because of some personal tragedy, the second is still kicking, but he eventually gives up too after one of his muses resigns from being in his last movie and the guy jumps off the balcony and I was supposed to care, but I didn’t, because this movie was so disgusting and boring that I almost fell asleep halfway through it…
I wouldn’t be so negative if there was some artism included in this piece. But no, all we see are metaphores served with the subtlety of Mike Tyson knocking down his opponent, 80 years old penises, silicon breasts, old people in the pool, Hitler and jokes about urinating repeated 10 times throuought the movie.
Boring, low impact piece of crap.
