Storyline

A group of Roman misfits spend the fall minding a vintage shop called Twinkled, a business that is failing in every way but in spirit. The owner strives to keep the store afloat, even as his wife insists that he sell the place and get a real job. One day a beautiful young woman named Camilla takes a job cleaning the store, and her presence has a profound effect on the lives of everyone, including Stefano, the well-meaning but unorganized shopkeeper, and Gigio, Camilla's loving younger brother who has Down's syndrome.

In a word (or two)....

I liked it.

Its simultaneous story line structure keeps great pace...its subtlety spars with its crevice-like breadth, and all this while polka-dotting the film with lots o' laughs. Laura Luchetti seems to be equal parts poet, scribe, and director...and a true talent in the art of storytelling through film.

Filming...great photography, unique camera angles, interesting use of sunlight and exploration of moods. An artists lens, for sure...

The writing...many layers, compelling conflict...playful, oddball hilarity...so many layers, far from any generic run o' the mill characters (absorbed and expressed quite impressively by the entire cast....more on that in a bit...). And although the characters are of an entirely unique and idiosyncratic dimension, there are an enormity of elements in everyone of them (the characters that is), that any audience experiencing this film will undoubtedly find relatable qualities and/or situational similarities between the poetic expression of the script, and the story line which is one's own reality (or one's own suspect factual acceptance of things as we see 'em).

The cast...solid all around. Usually my negative magnifying glass, or should I say my telescopic exploration of all things negative (as a result of some sort of twisted neurosis no doubt), can pick out an actor or two (or in extreme cases, the majority of casts) to complain about. But in this film, there is not one grain of sub-par acting. Although Diane Fleri (the stunning...) around who's character (Camilla) the film is weaved, has an astonishing performance, and although the whole cast's performance is astounding, the job that Mauro Ursella (who play's Gigio) was, in my opinion, the best...

The film's ending, like most of its other aspects, carries it's own uniqueness (though nice and tidy in its own individual manner...). So perhaps I should simply say that its not the typical come to be expected 'hollywood' resolution and disappointment...or perhaps I should say that I cant quite come up with the correct words to fully express the point I'm trying to convey.

If you are lucky enough to get the chance to catch this flick, do your self a favor, check it out...and enjoy it.

(though we all have our own opinions eh?...)
