Pretty, Fast and Intense
19 November 2014 | by velocipedusSee all my reviews

Interesting format, fast paced, intense with pathos and beauty, a complex ode to Italy, but here Italy is everywhere. Surely, not to be judged on the likeness of a national portrait, but on the quality of the cuts and transitions. Very basic material: Waking up, cooking, eating lunch, going to bed, clouds passing, but sufficiently philosophical and fast so it never gets boring. There are a few temptations of Youtube here (animals, cats), but I can live with that. Worthwhile, not so much for what it may teach you about Italy, but for what it may show you about the love of humans for other humans. Neighborhood dances! Also great: Babies experiencing the wonder of water. No guns, either!
