12 December 2001 | by ItalianGerrySee all my reviews

In this mordant satire Nanni Moretti (who also directed) plays a new teacher in a radical Roman school called the Marilyn Monrroe School, where there is a jukebox in every classroom! Discipline is frowned upon and the resident psychiatrist is not for the students but for the teachers. The teacher becomes a suspect in a series of murders (not an uncommon temptation for teachers) and displays an insidious obsession with molding the lives of others to comply with his own inhibitions and obsessions. Bianca is the name of the girl he pursues fruitlessly. The ending of the film, which we cannot spoil for you, was considered excessively severe for the Woody Allen-like proceedings which form the body of much of the film, but we feel it is a delightful, clever, and devilish piece of work from a director better known to us for his later film CARO DIARIO.
