The only dream of Pietro is to become a famous actor. 28 year-old Pietro is so obsessed with becoming an actor that he does not mind trying every single way. He comes Rome and starts to work in a bakery. Also, at the same time, he tries to be an actor. At first, he stays with his cousin, Maria , but then he rents a house. Nevertheless, in a short time, something weird happens at the house. As if the furniture moves by itself. Then he realizes that the house was haunted by some ghosts, so with it, the adventure itself begins.Written by
On the surface we really are told a fairy-tale. But just on the surface. The movie is (to me) all about love(or passion) versus obsessionin in addition to loyalty versus betrayal all in the life of people. We see how a group of players loyal to themselves, their art, and to freedom manages to live and reach eventually beyond their time and life (even if they are just imaginary ghosts). Betraying member, who were loyal to herself only... A monster she became eventually. Not to spoil too much, lastly how important is doing or wanting things with passion and love no matter what it is (making cakes or becoming an artist) is presented in cute and clever way by the director. It seems that the message is that all that "small / ordinary" people are in fact the real/biggest/highest/ultimate "human" beings if they are okay with what they are and if they have intimacy, love and passion in their life.Being human is not that complicated and in fact is full of richness in so many distinct conditions and times
