In summary, Sanremo is a complete, heart-felt viewing experience.
With care, Mandić lends his central couple a dignity that’s admirable to observe.
The music, and other elements, elicit powerful memories for people who seem to live in a constant present.
Storytelling steps back and the pure cinema moves up front, revealing more than a heavily narrated approach.
TALLINN BLACK NIGHTS FILM FESTIVAL
With its poetic film language, "Sanremo" is an impressive drama about love and time. Of what we remember and what we don’t. A contemplation that sneaks into your soul.
Sparing and repetitively stagnant, it will effectively touch a nerve for the audience, because it’s not difficult to empathise with its contemplation of the fragile nature of love and affection, that the filmmaker lays bare.
Sanremo is the kind of film that lives with you for weeks, even months, after watching it.
UMEA - EUROPEAN FILM FESTIVAL
Sandi Pavlin and Silva Čušin both deliver very impressive performances in their roles as Bruno and Dusa, making this film a heartwarming hit and an experience well worth remembering.
THE FILM VERDICT
Besides Darko Rundek’s gorgeous score, heavy on atmospheric vibraphone, diegetic music also plays a key role.
Sanremo is a film that is completely naked, having no holds barred to its portrayal of the issue.
Sanremo is a brilliantly acted romance that moves you without taking any shortcuts.

With no more "us", no intellectual power nor rationality, there is only a steady instability of emotions.
In this gentle and thought-provoking drama about love in a nursing home, dementia is getting the noble, almost poetic treatment.

Reviews of Sanremo
Everything changes all the time—their memories, their experiences of each other, their understanding of when, where and who they are—and somehow in mystery and grace there’s love.
