Life is love, love for life
4 November 2005 | by DOMENICO_SOLDANISee all my reviews

Many of the Italian movies in the last decades are about individuals, in the effort to explain the world through the eyes of a small group of men/women involved in their daily problems. Rubini, one of the prominent actor/director of this Italian "way to the movie" shows in his work all the limits of this vision, but with all the details, and gentle introspection that make this movie a pleasant and enjoyable product. The plot is about an actor, in his late forty and at the top of his life, that suddenly is slapped by the fear of a crude illness. So he must revise his life, work/love/family/friends: this is done in a very interesting mode, with smooth and calm attention, permitting the audience to read any similitude to their real life. This attention to the real world is evident in the choice of some characters (i.e the actor father is the real father of Rubini). So, if you are interested into an European movie about life, and have enjoyed "The Barbarian Invasions" I will suggest you to look at this movie too.
