an hidden gem
I saw this film on DVD, after seeing Puccioni's second feature at the theater, here in saint Petersburg, Very different film indeed, but with something in common with this. After seeing both films I believe he is one of the best new director from Italy. Quello che cerchi (что йшет он - in Russian) is a moody, personal film which makes you trip in sea of continuous change, where identity and behavior continuously shift. It's an unpredictable movie, with sparks of great imagination- I liked it a lot, but only give a 8 instead of a ten because I liked Riparo better, because it is a more controlled film, with a powerful comment on modern society. I still praise что йшет он because it has a rare force to renew an old theme like the search for one's origin and identity. They are both very humanistic and very interesting.
