Dynamic, fresh movie. Sometimes it makes no sense, still is so funny to watch. It reminds me some underground comics of the seventies. The scene in the taxi, when the driver explodes in a paranoid cry "BERLUSCONI NO!", made me laugh my eyeballs out. That scene depicts clearly the stressed state of mind of the average Italian citizen. Berlusconi? Heck, no! Libero De Rienzo is really starting to overact, not bad for his second big role, he's exaggerating in gestures and speech, playing a mock of himself, too bad we've already lost a good actor. Vanessa Encontrada on the other hand is a good surprise, i didn't expect that quality from a TV showgirl. Ponti's directing is strong and sometimes visionary, but i hope his next effort will make more sense. Funny but a little too silly.
