Storyline

The story starts with the 44-years-old journalist, Roberto "The Beast" Croci, forced (because of lack of money) to leave Venice's Metropol Hotel. But he's a good journalist and immediately starts looking for a new, fresh story for his L.A.-based editor, Mr. Gordon. He enters a music store and finds out an old LP, "The Great Complotto", with the popular Pordenone's Saint George bell tower on the cover. Intrigued by the 1970s album, he decides to find out more about "The Great Complotto" and what remains of it in the present day. He arrives at Pordenone by night and soon he starts to visit all the parties and all the concerts to understand something more about the musical live in that tiny Italian province.

I though it would be better...
26 August 2003 | by (Sacile, Italy) – See all my reviews

I saw this film at the avant premiere in Pordenone and I was really exited about it because it was filmed in the town where I live. I visited the set one day and I liked how the scene was going on. I didn't understand everything about that scene so I was very exited to see how it was developed on the big screen. But it was a big disappointment: the film is about the music bands in the area so they put a lot of scenes located in concerts, discos,parties... But it ended up to be extremely boring. The film editing and the direction are the big problems: director Guglielmo Zanette maybe don't know that you have to film a scene from different angles... A LOT of scenes in the film are one-take-scenes and that's why it's boring. There isn't any kind of crescendo, no climax scenes, no interesting story or characters.

I liked the opening sequence in Venice, a good camera work. But the rest is really disappointing. There is only one interesting character, Clara Salgado (who plays herself), who's a kind of ghost. But the script is poorly designed and there is no surprise at the end of the film. It's not the worst film I've seen, of course. But the artistic credits (and some tech credits) are erratic in extreme. (And what about the scene with the fake babies? Where came it from???)
