In Barbieri's second film you see a complete transformation in his style of directing. I remember the feeling from "One" (the first film) and I remember how I felt when I left the Theatre after seeing "Marciano." I was beside myself. I was so into the characters that I forgot this it wasn't real. I find myself going back to the words that describe Tony Barbieri to me. Full of life and always very passionate.
