Fairly Interesting
3 March 2005 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

This has some fairly interesting footage of the baths at Milan and the people visiting them. The setting is attractive enough to be worth seeing despite the faded print, and there is some action as well.

The setting features diving boards installed at a couple of points around the pool, and most of the action comes from the divers. They have quite a variety of styles, with some of them looking as if they really know what they are doing, and others just having fun. It's not anything fascinating, but it's at least mildly interesting.

Many of this kind of very early features allowed audiences a chance to see action footage from places they had never seen or visited themselves. The baths look like an interesting place, and it makes you feel as if it would be nice to see a little more of them and their surroundings. If the movie accomplishes that much, it probably has done its job.
