Audience Reviews for La città ideale
This Italian thriller was recommended to me by a friend who followed the Venice Biennale, and it is written, directed and starring Luigi Lo Cascio, actor past notoriety for thematic films such as The Best of Youth and The Hundred Steps. It was painted to me with such bright colours that I could not resist when I got a chance to see it. What a disappointment this was... I almost quit after 20 minutes - the story was developing so slow and annoying that I had enough - it got better later, though...

For almost a year is carrying out an experiment in his apartment: being able to live in complete self-sufficiency, without having to resort to running water or electricity. On a rainy night, Michael becomes involved in a series of events which makes him confused and mysterious. I have to say that I had a feeling that the story was moving by a snail speed in the first third. But, the later parts were better developed. Acting was plausible with Aida Burruano, Luigi Maria Burruano, Barbara Enrichi, Massimo Foschi and Roberto Herlitzka, performing the best possible way next to Luigi Lo Cascio.

A subtle satirical film noir about juridical system & the concept of idealism. Catchy & insightful for the first half; but wearing out quite fast from the middle, & starts dragging quite a bit till the end.
