Storyline

The only dream of Pietro is to become a famous actor. 28 year-old Pietro is so obsessed with becoming an actor that he does not mind trying every single way. He comes Rome and starts to work in a bakery. Also, at the same time, he tries to be an actor. At first, he stays with his cousin, Maria , but then he rents a house. Nevertheless, in a short time, something weird happens at the house. As if the furniture moves by itself. Then he realizes that the house was haunted by some ghosts, so with it, the adventure itself begins. Written by Umut Bulurlar

an absorbing and magical historical rumination
3 August 2012 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

This is the work of a mature storyteller who understands how to use film and music to lead the viewer into unusual and surprising places. There is much to delight an audience here, from subtle crossings and recrossings of genre boundaries, to moments of humor of an almost metaphysical dimension, to serious offerings of perspective on time, mortality, and history. I enjoyed particularly the way the filmmaker genially hoodwinks the viewer step by step into assenting to a story that becomes increasingly less predictable at the same time that its dependence on a sort of half-magical realism becomes more and more firmly established. The film does have an evident homoerotic subtext, and perhaps cultural 'flavor', but in a way that (for a change) does not limit its appeal. Rather, it reaches toward a kind universality that puts it in company with works of art that are for everyone whose heart and mind are in working order.
