good spaghetti Sf movie
17 February 2005 | by See all my reviews

When I saw "Anno Zero" I was very impressed for what could Italian Cinema do without American effort.It is a b-MOVIE for SF estimators and can be appreciated for what it is. Technically speaking it was outclassed when it was shown first in 1977, at the time public was educated by Space 1999 special effects, very advanced for that age and was preparing to taste Star Wars.By the way The movie was an example of what we can do with few money and an interesting plot. I remember what impressed me was the fantasy in the Plot; for example consider the race of Machines that send a message to earth in a sort of zipped form of a Bach music, perhaps Anno zero guerra nello spazio it is not a masterpiece, but it is better than many other American counterparts
