my impression
29 March 2004 | by (rome) – See all my reviews

I particularly appreciated this movie since is giving a real and funny image of the cinema s world. Also I think must be appreciated the work made by the director with a limited budget. The history appears original and,sometimes,circumstances are really comics.To be underlined the ability of Avallone Antonello on characterizing the personality of a movie producer. Also i would like to withdraw the attention of the audience about editing and originality of some shots.
