Why do we have to act strong?
23 May 2004 | by See all my reviews

"Why do we have to act strong?" is what a shattered Laura Morante has to write on a paper (ok, an almost obvious symbolism for our inability to communicate properly) to let Andrea know her feelings. Maybe this was the most heartfelt line of the whole pic. This movie sees Carlo moving from his more comic movies and trying to reach a new shore of maturity, this was also noticeable in his previous effort. Altough he is not Woody, Carlo is still able to give us some interesting views about - as individuals - growing up, and growing old, and - as couples

  • falling apart. There were some good laughs too in the movie, but what


knocked me out was the girl who played the daughter Marta, i guess this was her name. She was a really good surprise. On the other i liked Carlo's maturity in writing, but i have to admit i can't stand his mask anymore. He should try, sometimes, to step behind the cameraand let some others actors play the leading roles, this would help him to find a direction. Now he seems stuck in between two needs: to please his comedy fans and to grow up as a writer and director. When he's in the scene i always feel like "Oh, my gosh, if he wasn't playing that part the movie would have had a whole different appeal". When i see Carlo playing "the role of himself" (and this is definitely what he does in this movie) i always feel that he's empathyzing way too much with his character, a thing he could avoid slipping in the back, screaming "action" and then "cut" and letting some more believable actors play the leads.
