A worthy conclusion for an amusing TV show
18 September 2013 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

Boris is a comedic serial about the staging of a soap opera, the fictional Heart's eye, with a political and social satire. The main character is played by Pannofino, the actor voice of several American star, underrated but very effective as ironic actor.

After 3 seasons they made this movie that add a final episode to the saga. If you are a fan of the series you will enjoy this even if there is not real innovation since the characters done the same performance and mannerism but, since the writing is good as usual, is not really a flaw. If you are not a fan or not know the series Boris the movie is hardly fun : you'll miss all the citation and the quotes. The very finale is not that good, too farcical for be believable.

It worth a view.
