While two TV writers are trying to start a new program, one of them (Sonia Bergamasco) somehow finds herself (or, more correctly, himself; there has been a change of sex in the meantime) in 1826, gravitating around Ludwig van Beethoven, the great composer (Alejandro Jodorowski in a strange cast choice). In his masterpiece as a singer/composer, "La voce del padrone", there was a song, "Bandiera bianca", where Battiato told us "A Beethoven e Sinatra preferisco l'insalata" ("Salad is better than Beethoven and Sinatra"). We can just hope: a) that his next film will talk about salad: it will be surely more interesting than this incredible mess. b) that his next film will never see the light: the second effort of two of the more successful Italian singers (the other is Ligabue), after a very promising debut as directors (with an aid of someone else?), is something we are not going to forget, and that's not said in a positive way. Anyway, Antonio Rezza almost saves the film in a short cameo role. Watch this at your peril.
