Absolutely excellent, it will smash your mouth like the ashtray in the beginning
6 July 2006 | by RabensblutSee all my reviews

U remember when my friend told me to go to the cinema to see a "a new Italian vampire flick". We were studying the same class of the bilingual Italian-Slovakian school and the film was an Italian one and whole in Italian.That was also why I liked it so much, I don't like the dubbed films. This film has everything, U can laugh, You can cry, little bit of blood and lotsa stunning life dramas and of course acting,I personally loved (once again) Paolo Villagio as the old dentist, the character suited him well. The music is absolutely stunning (Deep Purple right in the beginning) and U will like it through all the film. There are lotsa good dreamlike sequences like when Antonio is speaking with the deaf guy. This is about life and death, and about the life of every of us. If U seen Nirvana or Mediterraneo from G. Salvatores U will also love this one.
