Best film of 2020, Manohla Dargis, New York Times
Best film of 2020, Bilge Ebiri, New York Magazine
Third best film of 2020, Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times

Adapted from a 1909 novel by Jack London yet set in a provocatively unspecified moment in Italy’s history, Martin Eden is a passionate and enthralling narrative fresco in the tradition of the great Italian classics.

“Vibrant and passionate.    A dazzling showcase for Luca Marinelli.    It’s as if the whole 20th century had been distilled, or scrambled, into an eternal, mercurial now.” – Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times

“One of the most epic-feeling Italian movies in years, a throwback to ’70s-era big-canvas statements.   Lead actor Luca Marinelli, rousing in every scene, comes within hailing distance of the young Robert De Niro.” – Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out New York

“A movie that arrives like a bolt out of the blue, bursting with ideas, not unlike its hero.” – J. Hoberman, The New York Review of Books

Language: Italian (English subtitles)

Length: 2 hr. 5 min.
