You'll fall asleep to this Fairytale
Coming to DVD/DOV on May 12, 2020 is another LGBTQ comedy-drama from Breaking Glass Pictures. As a 2018 Golden Ciak (Best Production), More Love Award (Festival Mix 2018) and Flaiano Prize Winner (Best first work by Sebastiano Mauri), expectations were high. However, when the star Mrs. Fairytale (Filippo Timi) is the screenwriter whose stage play the film is based upon, and the Director (Sebastiano Mauri) is married to the star/screenwriter, disaster can follow, and follow it does. Mrs. Fairytale is a stay-at-home (beautiful set design by Alessia Anfuso) 1950's housewife (equally good looking loud costumes by Gavio Zabernardi). When her friend Mrs. Emerald (Lucia Mascino) and her find out their triplets boy-toy is sleeping around, mom (Piera Degli Esposti) conjures up a UFO who steals her stuffed poodle (Lady) and the alien presences brings up a change in Mrs. Fairytales sexual desires. Don't get me wrong, over-the-top, female impersonating, loud couture, farfetched storyline and camp can be fun. However, when the subtitles are too low on the screen to read, and the storyline keeps getting dumber and dumber, one has to just say this fairytale needs to end. Director Mauri lost control of this production early on, and actor Filippo Timi did little to help and/or make it fun or funny. This is a Fairytale one can't wait to wake up from, or at least fall asleep during.
