| A stunning cast for an original script
I'm a big Margherita Buy's fan and I can say that she perfectly fits her detective character, anyway everyone of the cast does his job very well (you can say that there are the best young Italian actors). The subject is absolutely topical and relevant: the television's world and what lies beneath that. As a matter of fact I think the script is the best thing of the movie, maybe because is based upon a nice novel by Niccolò Ammaniti, one of the most famous writer in Italy. I wrote this novel and you can say that the film has got the same intriguing and fascinating mood. I can't see how u can criticize a movie like this, maybe because sometimes here in Italy we're to hairsplitting, most of all with our own directors and movie.
