I must say I'm not that Citti's fan. Nevertheless, I've been very
curious watching this rare movie. And, well it's been a surprise.
Despite of a poor photography, the actors and actresses starring, the
plot, the poetry of images and words, made me think it was a little
masterpiece. It's more than a movie, a metaphor. The hunger, the hunger
for all. The need for food, adventure, knowledge, dreams. And dreams in
fact seem to satisfy more than food itself. Giorgio Gaber, Dario
Benigni, Franco Javarone, Daria Nicolodi, the director Citti, Ninetto
Davoli are metaphors themselves of a lost way of making cinema, and ,
in one word, of describing Italy. Gaber's dry foolness, Javarone's
Neapolitan way of helping people, Nicolodi's bourgeois sweetness,
Benigni's sense for dream react with poor, simple philosophy played by
Davoli and Citti. A sweet poem, a gentle flower.
