Punk rock cuts the emotions
Well, seems quite an interesting costume drama? Not be so sure! The italian director has made this movie original by mixing in very strange music, nothing less than something like punk rock. Nichiarelli kinda says that the free and very very modern spirit of Marx's daughter
was kinda imprisoned in the 19th century's dogmas and especially patriarchal society, where women did not have even a half of freedoms as today. So there is tons of femminism in the movie. Oh yes, all femminists have to see it (seriously).
I do understand this approach BUT...for me it did not function. On the contrary - it
frightened me away. I could not connect with this drama. This rock music just cancelled any connection i would liked to have with the movie.
And especially the ending, the finale. OMG.
My big compliments, however, go to the production design - very good, of
Alessandro Vannucci and Igor Gabriel. Also costume design - Massimo Parrini - 9 points.
