'Pietro' is a brilliant tour-de-force by actor Pietro Casella according the skillful and raw plot and direction of director Daniele Granaglione. This desperate, miserable story really makes you touch and somehow feel empaty with the kind characters you usually read in the crime news. Pietro is a boy with a light handicap, whose life is subdued to the addiction of the brother and his problems with drug dealers and street gangsters. He trays to work a straight life of impossible dignity, inhibited more by a sad social role of clown for the brother and friends than by the hard, demeaning work or few perspectives of better life. The performances of the actors are the main thing; details as score and soundtrack sometimes in my opinion border on the Great Cinema, while the desperate story follows a somehow preventable dramathic path. This fine movie deserved a bigger notion at Locarno 2010 Film Festival for sure.
