great characters, distorted reality
12 February 2018 | by zarugcSee all my reviews

It is a movie that on the backdrop of a seemingly banal and predictable story, depicts contradictory ideas, almost surrealist frames and very expressive characters. It is the seal of Carlo Fusco, I guess. And.. funny as well :)
