The mourning's nemesis
16 December 2006 | by nablaquadroSee all my reviews

I really don't understand the harsh reasons to bash day by day this Placido's film. The way it's narrated it's articulated and elegant, far light years from the amateurishness of which is often charged the Italian cinema after the death of the "masters" Fellini, De Sica. Michele Placido, who directed the recent acclaimed "Romanzo Criminale", in "Ovunque Sei" re-writes the City of Angels script with a brave key of supernatural meanings. Thought it seems a little bit hard to follow in the early scenes (the way it's been edited requests an effort from the audience) but it's impossible not to be dragged by the emotions and the effusions spread between the two lovers, the mourning drama lived inside (it's a movie not the reality!!) and the concept of an angel standing-by.

Rather, it needs so much participation, share, by the public that people who doesn't know the real sorrow because, lucky them, they never had to manage it, didn't involved at all inside this movie.

All the four actors Accorsi-Bobulova-Placido-Dionisi are skilled and they prove to represent at its best the new Italian recitative class.
