Movie Reviews

Intriguing, Beguiling, Ambiguous
Matt Langdon | Los Angeles, CA United States | 02/28/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Bellocchio's films are so beguiling that one is never sure whether to laugh or take them a little bit serious. And I suspect he would want it that way. Ultimately, his films are beautifully shot, playful narratives with some social and political undertones weaved in for fun. Much like his film 'My Mother's Smile' this film has an intriguing tone that is hard to grasp right away but engaging and well directed; it also stars the same actor - Sergio Castellitto.
Hiding out [sort of] in a small town in Sicily a film director gets roped into 'directing' a wedding being held by a local Prince who is marrying off his daughter to someone she does not love. The director falls in love with her and tries to find a way to help her escape her fate.
But plot really cannot do justice to a Bellocchio film.
Without a doubt this is one of the best of the unseen films of 2008. It is artistic and playful in ways that films were in the sixties and seventies when European cinema had a grip on film buffs everywhere.
If you consider yourself an 'art film' fan you should check it out."
