Agata e la tempesta Reviews
"Agata and the Storm" has to be one of the most random movies I have ever seen which could change again by next week. Story and character elements, including the very odd bit of magic realism, float in all directions, never really able to connect with each other. Some of which has to do with family; others not so much. But it is hard to hate on a movie that is so amiable and that shows so much love for literature. Plus, I know how to pronounce Kierkegaard correctly now.
(2004) Agata & The Storm/ Agata e la tempesta
(In Italian with English subtitles)
Watching "Agata & The Storm" is like watching a lightweight Pedro Aldomovar movie which viewers have to hold their assumptions until the very end. The star Agata(Licia Maglietta) a middle age single woman owns a book store with a younger customer falling for her. At the same time, someone by the name of Romeo (Giuseppe Battiston)goes out of his way to meet her brother who's an architect Gustavo(Emilio Solfrizzi) who may or may not be adopted. There's nothing cringing upon seeing this film and it uses drama and irony some predictable and some isn't but still enough to keep viewers interested.
2.5 out of 4 stars
Ok, I'm not sure what it is, but it's good. If you've got an evening to sit and relax to a great film with a happy ending, this is it. Yeah, the ending wasn't happy for one of the characters, but his dream does live on!
