Camera swinging, what a poor trick!
How could you tolerate that ridiculous camera movement? I am a TV producer and I sometimes use the camera on hand to give some effect. But in the final cut, my swinging effect doesn't last more than 4 seconds. Here lasts more than two hours! I understand the purpose of instilling anguish in the spectator, but this is a very poor trick. I literally felt sick wanting to endure to the end, unlike other people who have left the cinema in advance. I admit that the script may have some interesting cues, although I found rather banal and obvious certain combinations between astronomy and psychology. The acting is good (thanks, actors!) but everything is ruined. I prefer directors who talk to my brain, not to my guts.
N (Io e Napoleone) (2006)
A funny (and serious) film
Would you like to know why French and Italians love/hate each others? Would you like to have a glimpse of history that drives our lifetime? So, go to watch Virzi's film (in original language, of course) and you can look at a wonderful Monica Bellucci who finally speaks her native language from Città di Castello (Umbria, just at the border with Tuscany). And the rest of the characters speaking Livornese (lovely Sabrina Impacciatore and all the others). Daniel Auteuil definitely in his shoes with Napoleon. A lot of fun, a real fresco of the Elba Island landscape, and a picture about the political reasons to kill or leave alive a tyrant (good for all times).
