A cheap good movie
10 June 2006 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

"Piano 17" is the last movie written and directed by Antonio and Marco Manetti (a.k.a. Manetti Bros.), two very promising directors of Italian cinema.

They shot it with only 65,000 € (about 82,000 $) but the result is unquestionable.

The protagonist of the movie are four robbers who try to rob a bank, but during the robbery, a security guard shoots at one of the robbers: it's Matteo Mancini. They've lose the money they'd robbed. Now they have to put a bomb in an office; so Matteo's brother takes the elevator and goes up towards the 17th floor. With him there are also an unprejudiced secretary and a clumsy employee. When the elevator is going to reach the floor it stops. Now they're trapped in the elevator and they can't go out. But the worse thing is that the bomb is going to blow up. They've only one hour and half to go out. Mancini tries to inform Pittana and Borgia (his parties), but especially Pittana seems he doesn't want to save his friend.

The ending is quite predictable, but the rest of the movie is very good. There are also some flashbacks that explain what have happened before.

Good actors, good direction, good screenplay.
