An Unrealistic Portrait of Italy
29 September 2014 | by DegustateurDeChocolatSee all my reviews

I had good expectations for "Italy in a Day" because I had watched other Gabriele Salvatores movies and I liked them. Unfortunately it was a delusion. The idea of creating a collage of various amateurs' footage about their daily life was interesting and challenging but at the same time tricky. Salvatores created a predictable picture of Italy, in which its current problems are brought up as unemployment, distrust in politics, hardship of everyday life due to the economic crisis. Everything is of course sweetened by poetic sentences said by the people filming their selves, videos on new born babies and lovers kissing and hugging each other. As a result the director seems to simplify Italy's life to love and sweet moments while many different things are going on. Probably the title "Italy in a Day" was a little too assuming and it made me think it could convey an important message or give a truthful insight of Italy, while it manages only to give a superficial portrait of the country and its inhabitants.
