    "[V]ery enjoyable.... This second outing from writer-director Duccio Chiarini ...slowly morphs from a comedy into an affecting melodrama that charts the difficulties of a generation less interested in commitment, whether it be in relationships, jobs or, more generally, in life."
    Boyd van Hoeij, The Hollywood Reporter
  • Highest Rating
    "Duccio Chiarini's film is kind and lovable, with a naturalness that is easily one of its best qualities."

  • Highest Rating
    "[H]ighly entertaining.... The Guest offers a perceptive insight into how today’s generation of people in their late 30s and early 40s are afraid of commitment, and even decision-making in general."
