[Director Moretti] wraps his political agenda with an affecting story about a fading filmmaker whose dreams and beliefs aren't weathering the storms of middle age. If the politics don't get you, the life empathy will.
A familiarity with the vagaries of Italian politics in the last 20 years is a help, but not a necessity, to appreciate this fascinating at times farcical blend of domestic drama and political rumination.
A warm family drama pops through the seams of a film within-a-film about Silvio Berlusconi.
... the film-within-the film wraps, but the willful manipulation of honest citizens continues unabated.
An unfocused mess of a movie that fairly throws its hands in the air in the final act, rather than chug along to a conclusion.
one can only assume that it was the accumulation of Berlusconi's own indiscretions that cost him the 2006 elections rather than the muted blows of this aimlessly incoherent and over-clever satire.
Telling moments occur here and there, but there is a slack randomness to the movie, the attack on Berlusconi is unfocused and Bruno is too weak to sustain the film.
Some moments amuse but one's left wishing that Moretti had ditched his film-within-a-film framework and made either a documentary or a domestic drama.
Muddled and messy anti-Berlusconi satire now looks even more exasperating than when I first saw it.
The political satire in this bitty drama can be lost on those residing outside of Italy.
A fascinating film about moviemaking and government corruption, but it requires a fairly thorough understanding of Italian politics.
A comparison between two systems, the disastrous life of a film producer, and the calamitous course of a country ruled by a hypocrite and corrupt villain (which is not fiction at all, not only in italy).
A satire about power and the odyssey of making a movie about it. funny and with charming performances, nevertheless, some parts of the screenplay and the character played by Jasmine Trinca are a bit weak, and I also think the life of the producer, superbly played by Silvio Orlando, was far more interesting than the political aspects that Nanni Moretti was anxious to denounce, as he did right at the end. but that would be another movie, of course.
