Musical Odyssey
24 October 2012 | by mistymountainSee all my reviews

I saw this and thought i was watching Stanley Kubrick meets Hair. First of all, I have to give credit to Adriano Celentano for putting together this interesting musical film complete with dancing and musical sequences. Next, i have to give some credit to the costume designer for her choice of colors for Charlotte Rampling's clothes, and the color coordination of the actors in some of the scenes, especially for matching both Rampling and Celentano's gray costumes in one scene. Then, Claudia Mori, Adriano's wife in real life and Rosalinda Celentano, their real-life daughter for making the film enjoyable in spite of some of the characters which makes you feel like you're watching a Mad Max film. Finally, the film editing and of course special effects that has a genuine technicolor feel. But the best song in the film is of course the title song, "Yuppi Du". What the title means is beyond me, but the song brings out a message of peace and harmony. I would definitely say that this is Celentano's answer to the musical Hair.
