Lezioni di volo (2007)
a light glance on growth, love and maybe life
I like Francesca Archibugi since "Mignon è partita" and "Verso sera" (with the magic Marcello Mastroianni), her eye looks always deeply inside growth and relations between youth people and adult ones - but she's also able to take light glances on life and problems... I loved this movie too, despite stupidity and non-sensitivity of Rome's teenagers... but then India and Kerala surely take the audience to a wiser vision of life, and love can make (A)Pollo(nio)'s young heart to do the right thing and call back Chiara's husband... OK I think it's clear I don't like the simple equation cinema=amusement - but this film contains also funny situations and a little humour... and Chiara-Giovanna Mezzogiorno shows all of her wonderful beauty, as well as Angela Finocchiaro acts at her best - unfortunately the role just can't permit Anna Galliena to do the same... PS I think I saw a child delivery for the first time on a movie screen: and this made me love "Lezioni di volo" even more!
L'aria salata (2006)
Can a man re-educate his old father?
Well, first of all I'm a fierce death penalty opposer... but this great debut by Alessandro Angelini hardly seems to indicate that really prison can cure your soul if you're an old criminal... neither Fabio, a professional as a prisoners assistant and teacher, for welfare services, can do really something to get his real father (which more than 20 years before left his family and little child - i.e. Fabio) at least to show some normal and human feelings...
...anyway I really loved this movie, and it's been a beautiful surprise to see lot of people watching it despite of colossal Apocalypto...
...and there's at least one great actor: it's Giorgio Colangeli as the old prisoner (Fabio's father): not just the only one good performance in this movie, but surely excellent!
Hope this to be the beginning of a great career for director Angelini!
