Storyline

On the day before Christmas a man is being interrogated, suspected of murder. We hardly know anything about him and we don't understand why he is been taken in for interrogation. Because the suspect stubbornly refuses to answer any questions, the assistant inspector brings in a typewriter - an Olivetti 82. That way he can type out his own story. After all he's a writer, isn't he ? Gradually the man starts telling us the story of his life - asearch for love and security. 'Olivetti 82' pictures the descent into an ordinary man's life. Step by step we find out about his tragic past. Written by Anonymous

Quite an intriguing movie on this director's debut...
29 October 2001 | by (São Paulo, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Very interesting adaptation of a popular european play, this movie finds a very delicate and intriguing way of addressing very controversial affairs, without making any explicit judgements or taking sides. It develops around the construction of Bernard's character, from his early days to the moment he's arrested, apparently having no idea why. This construction leads one to some deep thinking about values, life and love. Saying more than that would surely spoil the genuinely great plot.
