Mediocre, but enjoyable comedy, the two protagonists make a difference
14 March 2011 | by See all my reviews

No doubt Stefano Accorsi and Pierfrancesco Favino are two of the most interesting and attractive Italian actors of today, and their working together in "La vita facile", as leading and interacting actors, works effectively. Either of them spreads magnetism from every pore, always proving believable, and their pairing appears convincing, at traits explosive (see when they quarrel violently). As a whole, the movie entertains, with some mildly committed hints, but certainly far from wanting to be committed. In a moment when Italian cinematography seems to be attracted by the exoticism of Africa as a place of redemption and escape, here the description of the condition of sub-saharan people and doctors helping them is only a pretext, quite stereotyped and not sufficiently explored, only a background in the service of the representation of these bourgeois young people. Also the reference to some bad health system of Italy just lies on the background of what remains a comedy, that exploits a charming setting and an equally charming cast to offer a pleasant product, moving with agility to a final (in my opinion out of tune) surprise. An enjoyable product, indeed, with some funny moments: had it been interpreted by less magnetic actors, I would have written a different review, but cinema lovers know how a good cast cast, even a single actor, can save a movie from its mediocrity.
