Trivia

The small island where Ed had his house is located in Italy on the marvellous lake of Orta, close to the small medieval town of Orta San Giulio, a very calm and quiet place. Instead in the movie, the island is called Borgoventoso that means "windy town". See more »

Exasperated and exasperating distortion of our time's Cyber Idyll
18 January 2016 | by hushsaraSee all my reviews

Years and years ago, Pier Paolo Pasolini would have solved this 116 minutes film with one sentence: "Death does not mean a lack of communication; it is the impossibility of being understood."

And while this concept (twisted, distorted, disfigured) still remains interesting enough, Tornatore's prolix (plain redundant right there in the middle) writing swings between borderline creepy and full-on cheesy.

Among the tear-jerking treacle, his pseudo-philosophical, re-adjusted to the contingency, take on astronomy -- dead stars and all -- is accurate and poetic enough, and really the only element (almost) giving the movie an appearance of tightness, thickness and consistency in its back and forth, back and forth rhythm.
