Moretti in person Sat Mar 31 at 5:30! 35mm print “More explicitly political than Caro Diario, this again occupies that intriguing territory between reality and fiction as it celebrates both the birth of Moretti’s son and (with some reservations) the long awaited triumph of the Left in Italy. Once again, too, it’s heartfelt, eccentric and often very funny, as Moretti shares his anxieties and joys, likes and dislikes, incidentally including his own manifest shortcomings (paranoia, hysteria, self-centredness, indecision). Simultaneously sharp and gentle, rambling and to the point, it stealthily leads us into an ever stranger personal world, so that by the finale, extraordinary images of the film crew (with Moretti in cape, motorbike helmet and shades) swaying to the rhythms of a musical sequence about a Trotskyist pastry chef (!) seem perfectly normal.” – Time Out (London)
