Christian De Sica,
Released and billed as the alternative movie besides the couple Boldi-De Sica this Christmas, unfortunately Alessandro D'Alatri fails in his effort to craft a valid option to smile and meanwhile reflect about our recent society like we did with Muccino's Remember me, my love three years ago.
It starts promisingly with a funny dolly shot of the characters: the beautiful mistress, the honest/modest chauffeur, the politician's wealthy family. A look inside the show business, its fallacious happiness and indecent compromises.Then, the film reveals slowly its real shapeless nature, without a Soul, a category where to place it in. When you realize it was just an average comedy with adultery-remorse-disclosure-happy ending it's too late, and 7 euros in the ticket could have been spared. The boring second part made of phone calls, nonsense chats, sinking in the dirtiest TV-fiction standards nearly killed me.
Not all is to waste, I'll be honest. D'Alatri still has a good touch and the debuting Santarelli + Bonolis aren't bad at all in the acting. The ending it's quite unpredictable and I found it delightful, fair after all !
