The title is misleading. This film is not just about the Best of Youth, it's All of Life. The way it shows us people of all ages, of all classes, and from all walks of life, is quite glorious. This film really loves its characters. It's so well written. The 6 hours are never boring, and once you adapt to the fact that the character arcs have not been designed to fit into 2 hours, the slow pace is very enjoyable. But I do think it lacks an aesthetic touch which prevents it being a real classic.

After watching 6+ hours, I didn't want it to end !

Over-praised and barely passable soap opera that seems to want to present the viewer with a representation of the essence of each of the decades through which it passes, but rarely rises above clichéd melodrama.

Well made film that manages to make the 6 hour runtime breeze by rather swiftly, though not without a few hiccups. It never really excels, and simply stacking a whole lot of good solid work for 6 hours doesn't somehow make it into something great. The film changes style and thematic focus relatively often and loses cohesion because of that. A strong interesting achievement but no masterpiece.

Very beautiful and emotional from start to finish, well deserved its long runtime. A small story of an Italian family with all the beauty of Italy entwined in it. Great performances all around and especially from Luigi Lo Cascio as Nicola.
