"Come Dio Comanda" arrives in theaters after the big success of Niccolò Ammaniti's bestseller. Academy-Award winner Gabriele Salvatores creates a beautiful, powerful movie out of that already strong and disturbing story. The director's approach to the movie (always using hand-held camera) seems to create more a documentary than a standard thriller-drama, as if we were INTO the story, next to the characters, into the woods under the rain. The actors are excellent: Filippo Timi and young Alvaro Caleca do a believable and forceful job as Rino and Cristiano Zena. Their performances, full of anger and love, really support the entire story. Elio Germano create the best character of his career, a nearly lovable and sympathetic 'full', an innocent child trapped in the body of a man into a dark and corrupted world. Good job also by supporting cast: Angelica Leo, thoroughly believable as Fabiana and the funny part of Fabio De Luigi. Tech credits are also outstanding: Italo Petriccione's cinematography is surely going to win all the new season awards and prizes. Even better than his already excellent job in 'Io Non ho Paura'. The editing, fast, full of jump-cuts, the music score, modern, sincere, the real soul of the characters, the settings... The best scene? Probably the finale, the most moving scene of the entire movie.
