La vita rubata (2008)
A deep and important plot based on a true case but
The plot is based on a real fact happened in Italy and deserves to be known to public.
Despite the plot, this movie is a tv movie with some bad acting (yes, Beppe Fiorello too, even if he is a little better than others).
The story would have deserved some better directing and photography too.
Alex l'ariete (2000)
Beyond any imagination
I knew this is a bad one but every now and then I like watching a bad movie because sometimes they are funny but... this one is beyond any imagination. It's not even funny. I watched the whole movie, once and never again, but my eyes were in pain.
Dove vai tutta nuda? (1969)
I didn't expect to be amused so much
I wanted to see this movie in which there are Gassman and Buccella, two of the actors of L'armata Brancaleone, so I started watching this movie expecting no more than one of the many late 60s and 70s Italian movies, (B movies, comedies with a sexy wink, usually based on a weak plot and a few funny lines). But I was wrong.
This movie is a good one. Vittorio Gassman character is a witty and amusing thief. Tomas Milian is very well known for his detective movies, but in this one he appears as a totally different actor. Gastone Moschin and Maria Grazia Buccella are in the cast too.
The plot is sexy, yes, but funny too and a little surreal, set in Italy somewhere in the 60s (mainly filmed in Rome, even if the city is never mentioned) and the movie is one enjoyable hour and half of this Festa Campanile's movie.
Very enjoyable indeed. Suggested!
Andrew Niccol isn't new to this kind of movies. S1m0ne, Gattaca, In Time... all these speak for itself. Anon fits perfectly in the group.
Althought I found many cheap tv or Netflix movies, I have to say that viewing Anon intrigued me. Both Clive Owen and Amanda Seyfried act very good in this dystopyan detective movie.
Not an action movie for sure. A movie slow paced, a bit philosophical, set in a future (how far?) where no one can never be anonymous.
Very enjoyable. Suggested.
Piccoli fuochi (1985)
A story of love and jealousy
This is the story of an untold, misunderstood, love. As simple as a boy felling in love to a girl. She is very open with him, behaves with confidence, she never encourages him and yet she never openly stops him from thinking they can be together for she doesn't believe he might love her that way.
The boy is a lonely kid (around maybe six years old). In his loneliness the boy pretends to have imaginary friends like a dragon, an alien robot, and a king. His parents use to leave him with a tata, which he doesn't like, so they hire another one and this is Mara (Valeria Golino).
The topic is taboo but the movie depicts it very softly, never getting trivial or excessive about it.
The fact is that the girl has a boyfriend and the kid become jealous.
The movie end is dreamy. How else could a jealous lover get rid of his rival in love if not with the help of his (even if they are imaginary) friends?
And the boy becomes an adult by letting his friends go.
A fan (not professional) movie, and yet enjoyable and not bad at all
I'm a Potterhead myself, one of those who wrote in newsgroups (when newsgrups did still exist) trying to figure out with other fans what the next book could be (in the era of BOOKS, not movies yet).
Said that, I've also seen the movies. All of them. A comparison with this one would be highly unfair, as the "official" movies are professional products.
This one should be, in my humble opinion, seen like a fan story.
But despite its short lenght (less than an hour) and the poorness of the sets (all the movie is filmed inside), I saw this Voldemort: Origins of the Heir with pleasure. I gave 8 to this movie.
Yes, actors are dubbed but revoicers are English speakers (their names can be read in credits) and no one would have liked someone talking English with Italian accent. So this is a plus, not a con.
Yes, there are characters not canonic, but this is for the sake of the plot.
Costumes are great. Lights are good. Directing might not be so great, but good enough.
To sum it up, my opinion is highly positive.
