Life Imitating Art in Two Parallel Romances
6 September 2010 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In Rome, the aspirant actress Laura (Sandra Ceccarelli) is invited for the audition of the film "La Vita Che Vorrei" by the director Luca (Ninni Bruschetta). Laura is the lover of Raffaele (Fabio Camilli), a man with good circulation in the cinema industry, and has a good performance reading the dialogs in the screenplay with the successful actor Stefano (Luigi Lo Cascio). The extrovert Laura and the self- controlled Stefano are cast in the lead roles in the epic and they have a love affair along the filmmaking. However, their relationship has ups and downs with the jealousy and egocentrism of Stefano in a parallel with the characters of the movie.

"La Vita Che Vorrei" is a pleasant film about life imitating art in two parallel romances. The situations and dialogs are entwined between "real life" and cinema and sometime the viewer believe that it is part of the film but it is their private lives and vice-versa. This is the first time that I see Sandra Ceccarelli and this actress is so beautiful that could be the personification of the definition of a "pretty woman". Her performance is intense and I was really impressed with her beauty. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "A Vida Que Eu Sonhei" ("The Life That I Have Dreamt")
