Just love it
21 September 2017 | by See all my reviews

A tiny jewel by Mazzacurati,I think often back at some scenes or expressions of its actors, all excellent: Battiston plays a very fat Jezus on the Cross, I love this ( comic/melodramatic) actor, one of the finest we have, so humane, his face + body SPEAK. Orlando's always excellent + here hilarious as shallow opportunist niche movie-maker who can't sell his idea LOL ( he doesn't even have one ) so he settles for the direction of a regional , silly Passion-Play in some provincial hole of a village with 'ignorant villagers as actors' and he HATES it . He has right cynicism and is funny ( think of every time he has to use his mobile phone but there's no signal in this rural place ) The actor chosen at first to play Jezus is hilarious too with his theatrical over-acting and loud voice. And I could go on about how funny and sweet this movie is but I guess only for Italians, or even only Northern Italians , it's subtle humor. Mazzacurati was from my city and a pity we lost our only director. We miss you + thank you, Carlo .
