didn't they have better things to do?
Good photography and visual effects don't save this movie from being really ugly. That's it.
After decades, the kidnapping of Italian politician Aldo Moro still has mysterious sides. It would have been nice to see something like JFK by Oliver Stone, with an accurate reconstruction of facts, and the director guiding us toward the truth about it (or at least some believable hypothesis), in a clear and logical way, as to be understood even by those who are not familiar with the facts. But what comes out here is half a thriller, a low quality one that falls in every cliché of its genre but that is not exciting at all, and half a confused documentary, with the characters giving us a huge amount of hard to place details. And even though the theory exposed is absolutely believable, the characters' research is still based upon FICTIONAL proof, as the reel of footage they examine doesn't actually exist
So I think I still don't get this: what was the point of making such a movie? With all my respect for the very talented actors who played it, didn't they have better things to do??
