A 10-year-old boy shares an intense bond with his mentally ill mother. The youth's life is turned upside down when his mother lapses into violent psychosis. A former psychiatrist takes pity on, and then custody of, the child. Written by
"The Magic of Marciano" begins as a rock solid journeyman drama about a boy (Morgan), trying to cope with an emotionally unstable working class single mom (Kinski) and her abusive boyfriend, who finds a friend in an older man (Forster). As the film wears on, however, it takes a nose dive as Barbieri begins replaying scenes with two different outcomes, apparently in a feeble and annoying attempt to show the boy's fantasies, only to crash and burn with an unsatisfying conclusion and poor resolution. An okay watch for fans of the players but when taken as a whole little more than a mediocre small screen watch. (C)
