To avoid at any cost
30 July 2003 | by (Milano, Italy) – See all my reviews

I am glad to be offered the chance to speak my voice about this movie, so that I can warn all IMDB users.

A bunch of mediocre actors working very poorly (alas, the worst one is Valeria Bruni Tedeschi, from my country Italy, I have to admit), and a screenplay that probably tries to imitate the story of Pollyanna make this movie a very good candidate for your next "all-trash-night" (when you and your friends eat mash-mellows and ice-cream, watching Glitter and Swept Away...and of course this very movie). The top (= bottom) is with no doubt the dialogues. Lines like "I feel like I have a stone on my heart", or "If God exists, I wonder why He lets children die" should be heard only if you are watching Dawson's Creek on TV (and you would deserve them), not a movie in a theatre. An advice for Vincent Perez: I think it's better being a so-and-so actor, rather than a disastrous director. Agree? Hope so.

Beyond any limit of human tolerance. To avoid at all costs.
