A sufeit of Moretti
15 August 2018 | by hou-3See all my reviews

Written by, directed by and starring ... i wouldn't mind that, but he's in every single scene, and that really starts to jar after a while. He's an agreeable sort of chap, talented, liberal, charming etc, but he could let one or two other people get an occasional look in.
