I'm amazed to see the positive, even enthusiastic reviews about this sucker. It is actually hard to find a duller movie. Sorry, it is not so hard: take an Italian movie of the last 25-30 years and you'll have 95% chances to fall in the same pile of rubbish. Yes, because this is exactly the stuff that is produced in Italy nowadays. It can change slightly, something more idiotic commercial, something more wannabe intellectual, something more satirical (they say). Incompetent acting and sound recording, awful poppy music, utter banality in plot and dialogs - even worst than a B-TV movie. That's it, ladies and gentlemen, and this one is no exception: from the ridiculous voice off narrating in a fairytale way some annoying lines to the unintentional humor of Francesca Inaudi & Giorgio Pasotti's "acting". Stay away, or seek a movie by Matteo Garrone instead.
