A collection of Anecdotes
30 November 2005 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

'Gente di Roma' is a collection of anecdotes. Or I should say, that the director has many things to convey and doesn't want to bind it in a story. 'People of Rome', is at the heart of this movie. Movie doesn't have any official script or storyline. The director wants to show some sections of people of Rome and he does it rather honestly. As a cinematic experiment it is interesting. As the movie doesn't have a particular story or theme, when you leave the cinema hall, you are not sure, how to feel and what to feel. The movie claims to be a reflection of people of Rome and their lives. The first half of the movie is quite light and funny. You get a humorous impression of Romans. But than, the movie suddenly changes its mood. It becomes slower and sad.

However movie is an honest account of several problems gripping Italian and even European society. It talks boldly about racism and racist attitude of some sections of the society. It talks about mixed feelings of the indigenous people towards immigrants. It also talks about economic stagnation and unemployment of people. It symbolically addresses the issue of homosexuality. And the part, movie is most vocal about, is the problem of senior citizens. European demography has changed a lot after the second world war. Now it's a society with lots of old people. However, with family system fading away, taking care of senior citizens is becoming a problem. There is a scene where a father and a son are talking over dinner at a restaurant. The old father is cribbing about everything. He is making fun of the waiter and people around. The son is not able to keep the father with him. And the father gives excellent expression of pleading. You can read in his eyes that he craves to be with his grandchildren.

I think it's a movie, where the director doesn't want to convey anything. He just wants to express some random thoughts about Rome. He is critical about the city but still you feel that he loves the city. Hence it turns out be an expression of a personal sentiment. But it may fail to appeal masses. If you want to see something different, you can try this one. But don't expect to be entertained!!!
