Storyline

Il film racconta gli ultimi [rocamboleschi] giorni di vita a Napoli del professore Renato Caccioppoli. Questi, docente dell'Università, è un uomo disilluso e tormentato. Nipote di Bakunin per parte di madre e reduce dall'ospedale psichiatrico, abbandonato dalla moglie (che ad un certo punto vorrebbe tornare con lui solo per opportunismo), e divenuto estraneo ai suoi stessi compagni di partito (era iscritto al PCI dall'immediato dopoguerra) e ai suoi collaboratori all'Ateneo, si lascia volutamente sfuggire la vita dalle mani, bevendo assai e vestendo trasandatamente, nonchè assumendo toni ed atteggiamenti strani sia in pubblico che in privato. Finché una mattina decide di porre fine alla propria esistenza, sparandosi un colpo di pistola sul retro della testa, come aveva vaneggiato con gli amici alcuni giorni prima (Fonte: it.wikipedia.org, eccetto "rocamboleschi" A.C.)

ambitious
4 October 2000 | by See all my reviews

This film has an ambitious agenda. I don't know what it is. But you can feel it.

There are luscious sceneries sometimes because of it bareness alone. The way the characters interact have a certain quality which seems both surreal and too real.

It is a good little film that should not be taken lightly.
