repugnant
13 September 2017 | by sugarfreepeppermintSee all my reviews

I don't mind self deprecating humour, and Checco Zaldone is actually quite funny, but overall this film leaves a nasty taste in my mouth.

To me this film seems nothing less than an EU propaganda vehicle to celebrate the destruction of the native European people and their cultures and achievements, by showing them in a denigrating fashion. The "better" alternative offered, is the globalized society where citizens have little social security, no national or racial pride, and where they are even submissive to non white races and females. This film is subliminally sending out a message to Italians that it's better that they sacrifice their "privileges," and open their borders to the invaders from Africa, and that they should give them all their assets, so that Itlaians are finally "liberated" from their "shameful" traditional way of life. This film has as its aim, to stem the resentment that people feel for the deeply corrupt traitorous Italian government that is human trafficking dangerous numbers of boat migrants into their country. This film is insidious propaganda for genocide of the native Europeans and it goes in the guise of light hearted comedy. Quo Vado? Going where? To hell, that's where.
