The New York Times
An investigation among the attendees grants Mr. Andò the opportunity to pursue pithy, discursive exchanges about power, austerity and capitalism amid high-end accommodations and a tasteful classical soundtrack.
Director Roberto Andò takes the form of a classical whodunit and bludgeons it with naïve indignation and sanctimony.
The Confessions might remind viewers of films ranging from “The Name of the Rose” to Paolo Sorrentino’s “Youth.” But Roberto Andó’s film disappointingly ends up being too flat-footed script-wise to deliver on either its dramatic or thematic promises.
Los Angeles Times
Italian director Roberto Andò’s film feels entirely manufactured, distancing itself from its audience and blunting its points in the process.
Even if you agree with everything The Confessions has to say about the problems of our era and who caused them, you’ll learn nothing new and will find little entertainment in hearing your opinions espoused.
