very beautiful and very slow
23 January 2004 | by See all my reviews

Ballo a tre passi tells four stories from the empty, rural Italian island Sardegna. The film reminded me very much of Kaos, by the Taviani brothers. The pictures are delightful to the eye and this debut is made with very much love for this Italian island. Although a slow pace is sometimes necessary to tell a beautiful story, at some point the film is not intense enough to compensate for being this slow.
