35mm print “Perhaps the wildest comedy yet from Italian writer-director-actor Nanni Moretti, a European cult favorite—here starring as a water-polo player and communist politician suffering from amnesia. Interspersing clips from a TV screening of Doctor Zhivago and Moretti’s own Super-8 work from the 70s as well as cameo appearances by Raul Ruiz as a metaphysical priest, Moretti concocts a dreamy satire about the ambiguous status of the Communist Party in late-80s Italy, with water polo serving as a ruling metaphor (the title refers to a goal-scoring technique); journalism and advertising are particularly singled out for comic abuse.” – Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader
