An opportunity lost: save money and go for your favorite hobby!
Pathetic. Despite the presence of established comedians, the rhythm is faint all the time, the jokes are bland and not funny at all. Nobody in the movie theater laughed. Plot thin and without a logical connection even considering the intention to propose "pictures of everyday life". Poor direction and editing. Acting, if possible, worse. It sounds like an amateur comedy of the 70's oratorio. Disappointing in particular the performances of Bisio that seems disorientated and of Teocoli that instead is inconsistent. The use of cartoon is perhaps a quote to Tarantino? (boh?). In no way this film can make the real atmosphere of the bar at that times. Some nice photography shots, particularly the use of lights but nothing else to be positively reported. An opportunity lost: Save money and go for your favorite hobby!
