Reviews:

·           Brian Cox gives one of his finest performances in this familiar but affecting drama about a cantankerous Scotsman facing his journey’s end. 

·           “Cox is a wonder to watch, and seeing him in this gentle, vulnerable role, also spouting folk tales  and seductions in ancient Scottish Gaelic, is a treat.“ Los Angeles Times

·           “The balance of laughter and tears is perfect.“ Mad About Movies

·           “I’d have happily watched Cox flirt with Rosanna Arquette’s museum curator for 90 minutes; her game attempts to parrot his Gaelic and a tentaive kiss while gardening, knee-deep in soil, are strangely charming.“ Observer UK

       “It has a trump card in Cox, who holds it together with the excellence of his acting.“ Daily Mail UK

·           Binnun and Brezis credit their “incredible cast,” of which Brian Cox, as Rory, has gotten wonderful reviews. Audiences may recognize Cox, one of Scotland’s notable actors in film and Shakespearean theater, from such films as “Braveheart,” Woody Allen’s “Match Point,”and as Hannibal Lecter in “Manhunter.” 

 

·           “Sensitively directed by the Israeli duo Mihal Brezis and Oded Binnun, THE ETRUSCAN SMILE is a perfect example of what can happen when a great, versatile and powerful actor raises familiar material above and beyond….” Observer Rex Reed

·           “Based on José Luis Sampedro's best-selling novel, THE ETRUSCAN SMILE is the heart-wrenching directorial debut of Mihal Brezis and Oded Binnun.... full of pain, love, life.... Brezis and Binnun offer little camera movement, making for simple shots that show the characters' emotional complexity.” Chicago Reader Marissa De la Cerda

·           Brian Cox gives the performance of his career....Oscar is calling.“ Wild About Movies Tim Nasson

·           “Has energy and spirit, thanks to Brian Cox's bright, charming performance.” OBSERVER Rex Reed

·           “Delights with a good mix of humor and seriousness.” Cinema Magazine Lisa Schwarz

·           “Brian Cox brings his Scottish brogue to THE ETRUSCAN SMILE as Rory MacNeil, a role that Cox was seemingly born to play: a rough and wild man from the Hebrides off of Scotland, who gets in touch with his softer side when he’s forced to rekindle a relationship with his estranged son in San Francisco.... Cox is a wonder to watch, and seeing him in this gentle, vulnerable role, also spouting folk tales and seductions in ancient Scottish Gaelic, is a treat.” Los Angeles Times Katie Walsh

·           “Brian Cox plays a grizzled old Scotsman who stays healthy with nude swims off the Hebrides coast. He scandalizes snobs at ritzy events by wearing his kilt, teaches a linguist (Peter Coyote) Scottish slang, behaves like Crocodile Dundee, and falls in love with his baby grandson and museum curator Rosanna Arquette.... worth watching for Cox's bravura performance with some of the best grownup actors alive.” AARP Movies For Grownups Tim Appelo

·           “One of THE ETRUSCAN SMILE's many strengths is that it brims with humanism. The filmmakers treat both the characters and the audience as human beings from start to finish. The actors, like the filmmakers, also grasp human nature.” NYC Movie Guru Avi Offer

·           “Brian Cox fell in love with this story about family, damaged relationships and healing. He sees it as a heartfelt and moving story about the human experience.... audiences who have seen it, have embraced it.” ABC7 Los Angeles George Pennacchio
