real life movie
25 August 2005 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

The movie starts very well. The director is soulful in accompanying the protagonist out of the jail. For half an hour this affectionate look is palpable. When things begin to change - new work, new girlfriend - the director loses his best touch. Many characters (Ludmilla, the taxi driver, ex wife's new husband) are unconvincing and the plot becomes too predictable. However a good attempt to make a contemporary movie, i.e. a movie where people behave like real people and not like screenwriter's fake creations. This vein seems to be due to the director who is also very capable of telling stories without many words.
