a mule could have done better
1 August 2016 | by farippoSee all my reviews

The idea behind the movie is interesting, an innocent man unable even to speak is founded on a shore of a mysterious island and then educated to life, but the result is terribly boring and without any ideas both visually and in meaning. the visual setting of the film is clearly derivative of Ciprì and Maresco, particularly Paviglianiti, but the vulgar here is only hinted at by the figure of the dwarf and the donkey driver, and remains very little to counteract the characters that should be elevated as the Sheriff and the Countess with the rest. Terrible even from the technical point of view, with dialogues sometimes incomprehensible due to the bad sound. I save only the music.
