The bottomless pit of mediocrity
14 July 2006 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

WATCH THIS if you wanna see the worst in Italian television. Bad acting, nonsense plot, please-help-me-suicide music, and probably the fluffier teleplays of all time. If you watch the first episode with friends, then you can start playing the funny game of guessing what will happen next. Whatever you imagine, it will be more interesting, intelligent and witty than the episodes' plots. More than twenty years ago, I used to watch Mexican soap operas with my mum (I was a kid, and that gave me some problems I am still trying to solve today). Rivombrosa resembles those Veronica Castro performances that ruined my psyche forever. More than twenty years, and not a single sign of evolution in Italian television. We have absorbed the worst from every import serial we've been broadcasting through the years. All right, I know that Italy lacks a J.J. Abrams and that shows like "Lost", "X-files", "Miami Vice" or whatever you love most are probably things we will see once in our lifetime BUT this does not allow untalented people like Cinzia Th Torrini (what does that look-how-noble-I-am-I-have-a-double-surname TH stand for?) to direct an idiocy like this.
