Storyline

Giacomo meets Giovanni, his former best friend, with whom he quarreled three years before. Giovanni persuades him to go visit their third friend Aldo, who is dying in Sicily. Through flashbacks, we learn their story: Aldo was the phantom in operas, Giacomo was dubbing films in which he had only to make a noise without even talking, and Giovanni worked as a living dummy at the department store. Unsatisfied with their careers, they try to to stage a show of their own. However, women troubles separate them.

a city seen through different eyes
7 January 2001 | by val.fSee all my reviews

I was first hesitant whether to go or not to see this new movie by Aldo Giovanni & Giacomo. Their first one was a funny patchwork of their cabaret bits, but most lines weren't brand new for those who already knew their theatre shows. The second one was a strangely surreal story which clearly revealed the intention to do something different and unattended, but, after the end, it didn't quite convince me. But this time, Aldo Giovanni & Giacomo do all their best to speak a new language: the language of cinema, not tv's. And they do a good job: this story, about the power and the value of friendship, is funny and poetic too. Aldo's voice-over is a good idea, and the sound-track is well harmonized with the sweet-sour atmosphere. The final is surprising scenery-machine which, with a coup de theatre, brings the three friends back to where they separated, like a time machine that finally unites past and present. But, most of all, I've been struck by the way they see Milan. They materialize a place that doesn't really exist, except in the hearts and the eyes of those who really love this city. They create a place where, in a warm summer night, you go back home by bicycle, and the street is like a stage, with skyscrapers as backdrop and old buildings as wings. No cars, no hurry at all. Reality is different but, sometimes, when I'm in very good mood, I deceive myself that the city I love is actually such a quiet place. You will surely love this movie, as I did.
