If there are too many negative answers to the questions Irene clicks in her laptop, the hotel’s rating is in jeopardy.


Instead, the inspector in question, Irene (Margherita Buy), never fails to find something wrong at each of the hotels she visited.

Maria Sole Tognazzi’s ultra-sedate romantic comedy A Five Star Life is full of aesthetic sophistication and luxurious ambiance, but its pleasures are all secondhand, and the whole endeavor is too starved of incident to really stick in the memory.

I enjoyed the trip.

There was one lesson “A Five Star Life” seemed in jeopardy of teaching, and the fear that it would be taught speaks to how we as viewers are conditioned by Hollywood movies.

This entire subplot is completely out of left field, but Manville is so convincing and interesting that it’s less cumbersome than it sounds.

The geographical and architectural eye-candy, and the constant flow of information on how the job is done, should keep viewers interested. After a chance meeting shakes up her worldview even more, she's compelled to reexamine her choices and charts her own path to happiness despite the expectations of others.



Not so predictable is how the film gets there.

The great Lesley Manville, veteran of several Mike Leigh movies, shows up at a Berlin “Leading Hotel of the World” to engage Irene in friendly banter and discussion.

A Five Star Life shows something not often seen in American cinema, at least in films that aren’t police procedurals: It shows an ordinary citizen doing her job. Jen Chaney Jul 16, 2014 A Five Star Life steers away from pat answers and stereotypically Hollywood conclusions, a narrative direction that’s all the more refreshing with a woman in the lead role. The plotting, the scenario, and the eventual outcome are all far too familiar, (unique occupations aside) to register as anything more than standard cliché. The stars in "A Five Star Life" refer to the rating system given to hotels across the world. Eventually, “A Five Star Life” has to play out the moment where Irene questions whether Silvia is right about her status. In an amusing jab at gender expectations, director and co-screenwriter Maria Sole Tognazzi shows a waiter pointing out to Irene the supposed “mystery guest.” It’s a man with a huge cigar being treated like royalty while Irene has to wait extra time for service. All the high points of the story appear to happen off screen, leaving only the transitory moments that filmmakers might normally skip over. Buy adheres to the compulsiveness of one who lives for the work, and it’s fun to watch her notice things that she can’t wait to report. Spiral | 2020 Warsaw International Film Festival Review
