LADRI DI SAPONETTE

At the end of the 80s it was clear that the danger of television went far beyond the fears of a decade earlier. A generation of distracted TV viewers was born, unable of distinguish a movie from a TV spot.
The audiovisual mix offered in a quiet evening in front of the TV tell us very well what it was going to happen.
Nichetti plays with the TV, the cinema of the past, advertisement, in a movie all to be seen, always surprising, where realism, neorealism and hyperrealism meet with unexpected effects.
