Storyline

Antonio vive a Laveno, sulle sponde del lago Maggiore e nella vita ha una sola passione: il cinema. La sua grande aspirazione è diventare un attore come i suoi idoli. Quando si decide al gran passo e si trasferisce a Roma trova che il mondo del cinema non è come lo aveva immaginato. Si innamora di Cinzia che, come lui, è in cerca di fortuna, ma di lui è certamente più scaltrita e meno scrupolosa. Antonio si spingerà fino a Hollywood, nella sua ricerca di fama. Ma forse, tutto sommato, Laveno è il luogo più adatto a lui. Written by Baldinotto da Pistoia

How to remain a nobody in the movie business
15 November 2003 | by (Rijswijk, ZH, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Antonio Barozzi (Renato Pozzetto) moves from Lago Maggiore to Rome to become an actor. He does not realize his agent (Aldo Maccione) and acting coach (Julien Guiomar) are only manipulating him to further their own careers. A great deal of European stars have small parts or cameo's, some parodying themselves. Edwige Fenech is the most prominent of these, playing a starlet willing to sleep with anyone to get where and what she wants.

While stuck in an elevator for what seems like forever, a famous movie producer (Michel Galabru) offers Antonio a part in a Hollywood production. It is ironic that the footage shot in L.A. looks like it was all filmed on one day of driving around town. Hollywood turns out to be the final crippling blow for Antonio when he is forced to become a stuntman.

This cynical look at the movie business is just a collection of unrelated comic scenes. In the end, both Antonio and the film have still achieved nothing. His moronic character does not exactly conjure up a lot of sympathy either. At least Edwige Fenech is always worth a look, earning the film another point (though she only appears sporadically).
