Filmfestivalen 2016

Film, film, film....

Another epic journey is coming up! I plan to go to such varied and diverse places as Colombia, Parallell Paris, India and Iran, and even travel through time, space and dreams. It's a cineastic journey, though. My flights will be the lobby, my accommodation will be the comfy chairs and my tour guides will be movie directors. It's time, again, for Göteborg Film Festival!

Pecore in erba (Burning love) - Despotmockumentary by Alberto Caviglia

Focus: ItalyPosted by Martin 2016-02-06 13:22

With a total disregard for political correctness tells Caviglia the all but true story of Leonardo Zulliani, the boy who grew up to become the face of antisemiphobia.

It's a nice idea, to flip perspective and suggesting that bigotry against bigots is somehow also bigotry. Of course, it isn't, and the film makes this clear by it's sheer audacity.

However, some of the jokes are dragged out too long, and many are puns in Italian (hilarious, I do not doubt, but not easily, or cleverly, translated).

Still, a good romp.

Failed the Bechdel test
