News & Interviews for Spettacolo
Critic Reviews for Spettacolo
An engaging and wistful look at the tiny Tuscan village of Monticchielo and its longtime tradition of producing "autodramas," works crafted by, starring and thematically inspired by its residents.
Spettacolo stands as a testament to making art in the face of general indifference and worldly decline, and the belief that a can-do spirit and deep-seated cynicism are not mutually exclusive ideas.
We sense the pride these people take in this work. One of the film's most beautiful passages is a montage of different townsfolk - a teacher, a woman hanging laundry, a clerk behind a desk - practicing their lines as they go about their day.
It feels wrong, almost insulting, to call "Spettacolo" charming, even if the movie is often delightful.
