"Cannes 2010 was the year of Juliette Binoche. She graced the Festival’s poster; then she took the Best Actress Award for her role in this tantalising film. She plays a nameless woman who lives with her son in the south of Tuscany. British author James Miller arrives to promote his book, also entitled Certified Copy, a treatise about originality and copies in art and in life. She’s a journalist who writes about books and offers to take him on a tour to a nearby village so they can talk." (New Zealand International Film Festival 2010)

Binoche has a chance to display her noteworthy gifts as a comedienne, switching effortlessly from English to French and Italian to build a character that is resentful, manipulative and seductive all at once.

An exceptional film that plays with what is real and what is imagination. While exploring language and communication, this drama is both funny and intense.

Boring, slow. Great acting from it's lead. But this movie fell over because it just wasn't a movie. Usually there is a beginning, middle and end. This movie was an expanded middle. And not even a complete middle. The use of long sequences of filming must make editing a breeze but doesn't work for me as a viewer. My wife and I thought this was a film not...

She's brilliant and so watchable, making this movie. Its funny, intense, and mysterious. The questioning of reality is at times confusing, so that keeps you on your toes. Beautiful backdrops. Nice but not must-see movie.
