Arnon Grunberg



I’m a fan of Paolo Sorrentino. Two of his movies “Le conseguenze dell’amore” (2004) and “Il Divo” (2008) belong to the best movies made in the last decade.
His movie “This Must Be The Place” might be not as good as these last two movies, but it is still very much worth seeing. Sean Penn is marvelous; he plays a punk who grew into a kooky old lady, in the words of A.O. Scott.
The movie touches also on the legacy of the Holocaust. Sorrentino’s handles this subject delicately: detached and slightly ironic. He stresses the point that we are dealing with the image of the Holocaust. Nothing less, nothing more.
