Movie Info

28-year old Pietro has just moved to Rome with a new job. When he finds a beautiful apartment at a low rent because it is badly in need of repair, he thinks he's struck lucky. However, objects start mysteriously moving about and strange noises are heard in seemingly empty rooms. Soon he realises he's sharing with seven and a half other flatmates who have been in residence a very, very long time. Has he a ghost of a chance of evicting them or can man and spirit make a harmonious home?

The tension between fantasy and reality, idealism and pragmatism, is at the heart of the story, and explored with some complexity.

This intriguing mixture of present-day Rome with life in the mid-40s finds both humour and warmth along the way.

It's an elegantly shot and designed tale, yet strangely lacking in emotional weight.

A gentle comedy about a gay man's attachment to old-school notions of romance, Ferzan Ozpetek's film is reminiscent of Woody Allen at his most whimsical.

There's real pleasure to be had watching the worlds of the living and the dead intermingle, and Ozpetek handles the supernatural elements with ease, balancing the magic and the mundane to rewarding effect.

A wee bit special.

Pietro's struggle to reconcile fiction and reality is just about charming enough to hold this frustratingly unresolved and lightly uncomic film together.

This offbeat ghost story draws us in with its sharp-edged comedy then gets under our skin by quietly shifting the lively humour into much darker emotion.

Fails to enchant thanks to an uneven tone, underdeveloped characters and a laboured final act.

In the Ozpetek canon, this one is non-essential.

Charming, funny and just a little twisted, it's The Frighteners in the city of La Dolce Vita.

A Magnificent Haunting doesn't achieve the grand heights it aspires to and it probably won't haunt you for very long, but it has some interesting ideas and it contains some very impressive work.
