12 February 2020 | by duefioriSee all my reviews

Too sanitized, too much feel-good. The major objection I have is about the missing bits, the scary ones. In the book both Lucignolo and the Fairy die in a heartbreaking way (that should not be a spoiler), and believe me, in Italy the book has been criticized as too scary and traumatic (someone even proposed a R10 rating). You can like or dislike that part, but omitting it is a complete disrespect of the author. Then, the acting. Benigni basically plays himself. Mangiafuoco is played by a honest-to-god marvellous stage comedian which is quite obviously off role. Pinocchio's part is played by a kid whose acting skills are quite wooden (hah). The only truly great acting comes from Cat and Fox. Scenery and musics and costumes are nice, but that's about it. Flat movie.
