An expected delusion
21 October 2002 | by (Sassari, Italy) – See all my reviews

Since when I heard that Benigni was going to film his version of Pinocchio, I knew I was going to watch it not with a free mind. Too high was the score reached by Luigi Comencini in 1972 with his Le Avventure Di Pinocchio, and I thought Benigni would not have been able to overstep it. Now my opinion is that I was right. Benigni's Pinocchio has been good for my eyes (awesome scenography, great computer effects), but it hasn't touched my feelings. To me, the worst point of all is Benigni's recitation, not credible in children's shoes, even ridicolous in the crying scenes. Carlo Giuffrè is so and so, but I heard that Benigni cut out a wonderful scene of Geppetto talking to Pinocchio inside the shark in the final edit, and now Giuffrè is awful angry with the director. Very good Cat and Fox by Fichi d'India, the only really funny actors in the movie. Maybe I should let some time pass, and then watch it again; maybe the too much attention around it has driven me astray; I'll wait and see, but I think my opinion will remain the same. 6/10 only for its visual value.
