Brings genuine emotion to one of the most ambitious film adaptations to date of Carlo Collodi's 1883 kid classic.

Variety

A child-friendly movie with its fair share of enchantment but curiously lacking in memorable highlights.

In thrall to goodness and kindness, with beautiful creature creations and eccentric humour.

Garrone renders the picaresque antics in picturesque tableaux full of elaborate set-dressing and costumery, and delivers a moving denouement.

Moving, tender and sumptuous, but bears a sticky queasiness that some may find unbearable.

A handsome, inventive and extremely satisfying version of the famous story

The salty-sweet taste Garrone confects will perhaps be a little rich for some and the sentimental streak is certainly there. Pinocchio is a thoroughly bizarre story; Garrone makes of it a weirdly satisfying spectacle.
