What a terrible movie!
18 September 2006 | by franz-90See all my reviews

I'm Italian and i know perfectly the book "Pinocchio" and the mentality in which it had been written,because it's my mentality too. Now, just the fact that Pinocchio is played by a 50 years old actor that says lines with a false child's voice,should make you feeling a little strange.The blue Fairy is played by an actress(?) that never changes expression,but she's Pinocchio-Benigni's wife,so everything comes clear.Moreover,the entire movie is cold,just a collage of episode based on the book. It's sad that the most expensive Italian movie is such a bad one. Benigni is a great actor and why,WHY after a poetic masterpiece like "La vita è bella"(Life is beautiful) had to ruin himself with such a crappy movie??? If you want to see a movie based on Collodi's book really faithful to the Italian spirit, you've to watch "Le avventure di Pinocchio" by Luigi Comencini.THAT is the real story beloved by people in Italy and all over the world.
