      Amber Wilkinson Eye for Film The dual plotline never really works. There isn't enough happening in either man's life and the parallels are too obvious. Rated: 2/5 Jun 13, 2008 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member Esordio per Sorrentino che se ne esce con un film non perfetto ma interessante. Già si nota (in alcune scene) la fotografia curata. P.s. La scena iniziale de "La grande bellezza" (in cui Servillo balla in mezzo alla gente) ricalca moltissimo una scena di questo film in cui, sempre Servillo, balla in discoteca attorniato da ragazze. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/29/23 Full Review Audience Member Mi e' piaciuto proprio tanto, quasi non sembra un film italiano! Passa via proprio leggero, pur raccontando due difficili casi umani. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/24/23 Full Review Audience Member Paolo Sorrentino started his carrer with a giant bang. The only negative aspect is the lack of money in production ("Il Divo" d Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/05/23 Full Review Audience Member Nice. Picturiing a "different" Naples and with such an original story. A man's life reflecting itself in a stranger's.

Il primo di Paolo Sorrentino. La storia di due vite di omonimi che si incrociano per un momento dove ciascuno dei due vede i propri sbagli riflessi nell'altro, senza conoscersi..solo con l'istinto. Grandi Toni Servillo ed Andrea Renzi. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/15/23 Full Review Read all reviews
