good intentions
22 April 2012 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

slices from Fellini, drops from Michel Tournier novel. and a mount of good intentions. result - not a movie. but a game. feelings in large clothes, Anita Eckberg as axis of interest, a Jean - Yves Thual isolated in a too long story about life, friendship, hopes, rage, emotions, a dwarf, a girl and circle of small things.in fact, nothing convincing. only drawing of a large fresco and fear to finish the work. few basic solutions, far from real emotion. and some nuances of gray. not enough. but it is difficult to say - it is a bad film. it is only an exercise to present a tale. and a mountain of good , beautiful intentions.
