La Kryptonite Nella Borsa, of Ivan Cotroneo

With the Brussels Film Festival which ends tonight, I reconnected with the Italian cinema, or movies linked with Italy like To Rome With Love of Woody Allen. So I watched The Kryptnotite nella borsa of Ivan Cotroneo, with Valeria Golino. She’s been more and more beautiful (true) as an actress since Respiro. The pitch: each family has its secrets, some of them are funnier than the others. I liked the lightness of the narrative, broken by serious moments and the fatalistic vision of life, a kind of optimism. The southern Italian accent and the discovery of a Neapolitan underground of 70s (very cliche). Some great pictures, such as the black umbrellas at the funeral and the modest happy end. A lovely movie for everyone (me included) fed up with the depressive European cinema! Oops I forgot the soundtrack of the movie, including one of my favorite songs: These Shoes Are Made For Walkin ‘(but I prefer the Tigerman’s version).

La Krytonite nella borsa, d’Ivan Cotroneo

Grâce au Brussels Film Festival qui termine ce soir, j’ai renoué avec le cinéma italien, ou des films qui ont pour toile de fond l’Italie, comme To Rome With Love de Woody Allen. J’ai donc vu La Kryptnotite nella borsa d’Ivan Cotroneo, avec Valeria Golino. Je la trouve de plus en plus belle (vraie) comme actrice depuis Respiro. Le pitch : chaque famille a ses secrets, certains font plus rire que d’autres. J’ai aimé la légerté de la narration, où transpirent des moments graves, cette vision très latine de la vie, les ruptures de rythme puis une forme d’optimisme qui pointe à nouveau. L’accent méridional et la découverte d’un underground napolitain des années 70 (très cliché). Certaines images, comme le ballet de parapluie noirs lors de l’enterrement et le happy end discret, pudique. Un joli film qui s’adresse à tous ceux (je m’inclue) qui ont en marre de ce cinéma européen qui s’auto-mutile à coup de surenchère glauquissime et d’assommante auto-analyse! Vive la krypontite! Et j’oubliai la bande son avec l’adaption d’un de mes titres préférés : These Shoes Are Made For Walkin’ (je préfère la version de Tigerman).

To Rome With Love, the last movie of Woody Allen @ Brussels Film Festival

Tonight, it’s the Brussels Film Festival opening, but since this morning the press has watched a preview of films to be shown in the following days. At 12.30 p.m. I discovered the last Woody Allen. The Manatthan director continues piano piano his European tour with Roma, the eternal city: To Rome With Love. A bunch of famous actors, Alec Baldwin, Ellen Page, Penelope Cruz, Roberto Benigni. No real surprise, a quite predictable nice movie, sometimes overplayed. Far from the brilliant Match Point and the vulcanic Vicky Cristina Barcelona. But I really enjoyed the opera singer in the shower (which comes as a gimmick, I promise I will not say more …), plus few lines of dialogue played by Woody Allen. Well let’s say if you just want to relaxe and make a Roman pause or ballad (full of clichés), without expecting to a great Woody Allen: you will enjoy this movie.
