Andrea De Bruyn,
I'm not quite sure what have I seen. Was it a comedy? A satire? The story, if you can call it that, unfolds so slowly that there is not a chance to keep anyone's attention. A couple with bourgeois aspirations buy a small villa in the suburbs, they will find themselves living next door to a strange foreign couple. There is nothing in the telling of the story that could make us care about the happenings that ensue. Claudia Gerini goes through the motions, obligatory it seems, in every Italian movie. A strip tease of sorts. The kind of spectacle that it's always present in every Italian TV show and/or movie. I don't get it really, and I'm Italian. If you put a gun to my head and ask me to choose something positive about the movie. I will say, Luca Lionello. He is a very eccentric actor but, appealing, intriguing. I can't wait to see him in something that allows his human side to be at the forefront. The director, a singer/songwriter, must have had an idea behind this enterprise. But I couldn't tell you what the idea was.
