I saw the movie "E la chiamano estate", I was simply amazed and regretted the negative criticism it has received; you have to wonder why critics were so ruthless and not capable of aestethetic reading , why film has been distributed so bad and so rarefied, after two awards at Film Festival in Rome; why the main actress was booed and insulted during the ceremony; why it was not appreciated the effort and the commitment to design a research as that of Paolo Franchi. Acid comments, gossip, inferences have characterized the release of this film. Maybe one of the clearest evidence that Italy, at this moment ( we do hope just for this moment ) is a country traditionalist and deeply conservative, closed to new ideas, perched in Catholic thought hypocritally, condemning the diversity whatever it is , lacking a cultural scene open to experimentation, visual alternatives and other modes of production. Already that the film is a truly independent production, outside the grids of system RAI, the only network now able to produce in Italy. We're sorry for Paolo Franchi and his eyes authorial, for the audacious visual impact of the images, for the poetic drama of the bodies, for the beautiful and talented Isabella Ferrari, for all those who have believed in this project original, visionary and anti narrated. You should see it in order to judge
