" The Last 56 ore" to the festival of Montreal 2010
27 September 2010 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

" The Last 56 ore" of Claudio Fragasso it is an pleasant surprise, optimal film. Very written from Rossella Drudi and wise turned from Fragasso, here perhaps in its greater artistic maturity. " Last the 56 ore" it is a social-thriller that it holds with the breath suspended to every shot, full load of dramatic turn of events and changes of situations, with good result, in atmospheres and the pathos. With this film, a various way has been born to use the cinema of kind, the thriller in this case, in order to denounce serious of world-wide importance, always hidden like the damages provoked from Depleted Uranium and its effects in the men, atmosphere, water, earth and sky. As it comes very told, Depleted Uranium comes used in the crews of all the armies. The actors interpret the roles with ability and seriousness. Gianmarco Tognazzi on all, then Luca Lionello with its crowds, good performance. The actors, served from a good text, render their performance well. While the character of the sick one, interpreted from Burruano, false extension a crazy one, that laughing the truth says. Only intelligent note, granted to the comedy, with irony to break off the tension. This film is an example of European cinema, indeed, of cinema without borders, the history is d' world-wide interest. I do not understand because, instead exiting in he knows them to May, the production has not waited for in order to carry it to the festival of Venice, showing the foreign distributors, a true, Italian and exportable film, outside from the usual made rhetorical of the Mafia and history sluices within same they. Brave the authors and the producer, in order to have chosen to carry this history on the screen and in order to have made it in a new way. The film is not a documentary, not part from report history, the history is of pure fantasy, but how much happens is more than real. Moreover to join the civil denunciation, all' inside of a thriller, is not little thing and the result is successful. Seeing it is had it l' impression to assist to two various films that s' they embed then, in an only film, with a end to surprise. It cannot be exited from knows it without to remain some moved. I have seen the film to festival of Montreal the 2010, in the section outside competition, where they introduce the best of the international cinema and this is to demonstrate that I have reason. Many fine applause's to projection. Absolutely to see.
