Attempting to recover from his failed marriage to Rita Hayworth and restart his career, Orson Welles travels to Italy only to be drawn into a dangerous web of intrigue, murder and politics when an actor is murdered on his set.
Very strange movie. Completely mis-fires comedy-wise. I didn't laugh out loud (or otherwise) once. Walken and Hauer are wasted here, which is a shame as I am a fan of both actors. It isn't hard to see why it took such a long time for the film to finally be released.
Overall ; It gives you the distinct feeling that they might have run out of money in post-production; the editing is poor and the music throughout the film sounds amateurish. However even without these major flaws the film would still have been rotten to the core.
If this movie had been made in the 80's the jokes would have felt clichéd but now it is simply embarrassing. Add to that the wooden acting of the majority of the cast, the awful dialogue and the lack of chemistry between any of the actors; it is no surprise (that at the time of writing); no one else has bothered to review this movie and only 50 or so people have even voted.
Anyway; I wouldn't recommend this film to anyone. If you are considering watching this movie; please use your time more wisely!
