Umberto L.'s rating of the film The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou

Great cast, "genial" mix of directing-cinematography-editing, a very nice screenplay and clear references to Fellini and Cousteau. Thanks to this film, I've seen in Wes Anderson the ideal heir of the "last" Fellini ("Prova d'Orchestra", "E la Nave Va", "La Voce della Luna"). Even the colorful cinematography reminds me of the "Flash Gordon-like" cinematography of "Fellini-Satyricon"...
