Morel, a character out of the system

As the president of the jury "La Giuria" i can say that this is one of the best movies ever done. The director Emidio Greco is a genius, and his image is reflected in the character of Morel, a man completely out of the system, a cool pragmatic inventor, i don't say more because who read this comment must see the film without knowing other details. Don't miss this movie, if you don't like usual diagrams, because it makes you reflect about all life's sides, and vanity of life. The director Emidio Greco from behind the camera gives us lessons about the life, we can't miss them...
