An Artistic Empty Hole
27 December 2013 | by in1984See all my reviews

4.5 of 10. Something like a outsider/emo teen film, but in Italy. Lots of style and flair around lots of propaganda, product placement, and a big story hole, possibly admitted to at the end by a guilty director. It's the type of teen/young adult formula story I'm surprised isn't more frequently used in USA films. Apparently we're not as empty as Italy when it comes to film.

While the cast does a lot to carry the film, the direction and story is little more than a slice of life film. It makes for an impressive acting exercise for all involved.

Given that's it's apparently based on a book, and books usually can't get by purely on words describing hot naked chicks, melodrama, and cigarette smoke, maybe something got left out.
