Movie Review for Italian Documentary

Post by OofOof on Fri Mar 22 2013, 17:47

Here'a a Review for a Docudrama (Italian) called Italy Love it or Leave It

[/quote] ITALY: LOVE IT OR LEAVE IT: Four years ago a couple of gay guys from Rome made a film about intolerance in Italy and won wide praise at festivals. Now, Gustav and Luca are back, not as optimistic anymore and wondering if they should leave, for Berlin, perhaps. “What became of our country?” they ask. No jobs, plant shutdowns, pollution, Berlusconi and more. They hop into a tiny Fiat and travel the country to give it a checkup.

It’s a fascinating tour. Fiat workers are under pressure. Lake Como, where George Clooney lives, is the most polluted in Italy. He’s not there when they deliver a gift, a coffee maker whose manufacture has been outsourced to Romania. They irritate fervent Berlusconi supporters at a rally. They tour some unfinished—and un-needed—public projects and a store selling Mussolini memorabilia. They also meet people doing good, one of whom is a Mafia opponent who’s trucks are regularly burned. They debate each other constantly. Luca is the romantic; he’s from Rome. Gustav, from the north, is the realist, handy with grim numbers and facts. There’s English narration but most of the film is in Italian with sub-titles. Better that way for this low-key, quirky, equally funny and bleak national portrait. 3 out of 5

Clooney-love. And they said it wouldn't last
