Storyline

Cover-boy (low-budget film shot in the Sony digital HDV format and transfert on 35mm. feature film) is the story of the friendship between Ioan (Eduard Gabia) and Michele (Luca Lionello) respectively Romanian and Italian. The serendipitous encounter of two worlds apart: the travails of a young man, son of the Post-Communist Revolution, who flees his country in search of a better future and the travails of another youth who instead scrapes along the margins of a Western society that is unable to offer gainful employment to so much of its youth. In the background of this rapport between a simple Romanian youth and his marginalized Italian counterpart, there is a West which on one side is still reeling from the collapse of the Communist ideology and on the other, in the clutches of a Capitalist myth which has increasingly assumed, as it propulsive force, harsh competitiveness and an intensification of social inequality. The film tells the story of their shared experiences on the fringes ...

Well observed and acted; somewhat uninvolved
18 May 2007 | by simon-1303See all my reviews

This film is about a east European coming to the west and finding the streets aren't paved with gold. The acting is good and the scenes credible and well observed. The camera work is particularly fresh and strong. What stops me giving it a higher score is that it is closer to a fly on the wall everyday documentary than a drama. Little very unexpected or unusual happens and the life of an unemployed homeless migrant worker doesn't make for that interesting a documentary. Scenes aren't linked well together and where dramatic things do happen, they are not developed in the scene, the film just quickly passes on to something else. So I think the film maker is really talented but does need to get better scripts from somewhere.
