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?

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (1)

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

Time Out
Top Critic

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

Shadows on the Wall

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

The List

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.

Total Film

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.
