What I find most impressive about Moretti's film is how his plain, simple style lends the film an openness of possibility: flashbacks can pop up announced, the more surreal bits can mingle with the political commentary, anything can happen. It reminds me a little bit of the fleetness of late Buñuel (but I'm probably talking out of my ass).
One of my favourites among Moretti's films. Original, fascinating, smart and funny. And painfully true. Also, I really like Moretti's attempts to a political cinema and this one is really true, even though focused on a specific Italian stage.
