A man accidentally fakes his own suicide and tries to live a new carefree life.
8 November 2001 | by eadeSee all my reviews

Based on the brilliant novel by Luigi Pirandello, "The Two Lives of Mattia Pascal" weaves the story of a man who accidentally fakes his own suicide and tries and fails to live a new carefree life before being drawn back to the community that has "buried" him years ago. A superb film about identity, fate, chance and anonymity.
