A breath of fresh air - a celebration of life itself
on 17 March 2000
Nanni Moretti provides an incredibly amusing and quirky look at Italy, Italians and above all film making today. This film is really a piece of art which is full of beautiful shots, a wonderful soundtrack and a whole new way of presenting cinema. Moretti comes across with an incredible zest for life and even in the more serious third part of the film, still manages to laugh at himself, at Italy and at the world. This film really is a must-see, not least because it opens up a whole new world of cinema - often unexplored in the majority of other films. It really is a breath of fresh air in which you can join the idiosyncratic Nanni as he joy-rides down the rarely seen backroads of the Eternal City on his ever Vespa. Once you have seen this film you will be buying his sequel 'Aprile' - I guarantee.
