Wanabe romantic fable takes its time to involve.
31 October 2013 | by MozjoukineSee all my reviews

First film as director by Siani from Benvenuti al nord / Sud is low on charm in it's exposition, when the court official comes up with the idea of using the country's most underprivileged drop out as a fake suitor to revive interest in blonde Gwyneth Paltrow lookalike princess Felberbaum.

It's not till the second half that it intermittently achieves its wanted fairy tale romance comedy quality, when Siani and De Sica reverse roles as pauper ring-in lover instructs the aristo in the common touch, to win appealing red headed Autieri - complete with songs.

Nice atmospheric 21st Century Italian A feature production values.
