This film was a really clever look at how we romanticise the italian language, culture etc. Through a woman being seduced by afather and son neighbour (one in words on the phone, one inactions in "the real world") this woman is challenged with ideasabout how she feels about love and romance. It also makes funny references to the cliches of italian cinema and language withoutever becoming too overt. Nothing too obvious or overstated and the performances are reallywell pitched. Saw it with a few other aussie films (roundabout?and martha's new coat) and this was definitely the standout.Music was a bit student films at times but sort of suited the filmbetter towards the end. In fact, the sets and everything felt a bitcolourful and postmodern and the camera work did nothing showy-- wonderfully understated. My only criticism is that is set up such an interesting world that itshould either have been longer to give us more context or backstory to know who this woman is. Then the film would have feltless like a grandiose metaphor and maybe less tongue in cheek. Understanding the woman more, the consequences of her choices and actions would have really broken our hearts if weknew where she had come from. A small quibble...this is a tastylittle morsel.
