Da morir dal ridere! (DVD)
8 September 2010 | by (PariS) – See all my reviews

As a Frenchman, i have always been attracted by Italia because Italians are said to be "happy french". That explains why i used to watch a lot Italian channels on satellite and how i discovered Italian stars. But open markets aren't a reality in culture thus it's hard to find their movies.

This one stars "la" Ferilli and it's actually two short movies in one. If the stories are totally different (a suicide and a kidnapping), the directing blend them (a lot of blue filter for the night, long sequences of silence,...) and they are heavy on drama! Hope seems impossible. The only source of joy and happiness comes from the women in a sort of Holy Mary: "la" Ferilli and the criminal's wife brings a striking light in all this darkness. They may appears for seconds but they are really received as saviors. In addition, the movies take place in small town or the country so it's a rather enjoyable trip out there! In conclusion, there is indubitably a lot of gripping poetry here but it's a pity that it is hurt by the irritating laughing of "Boza Maljkovic".
