| A little Jem
Just saw this beautiful film at a sneak preview before its official theatrical release later this month. What a beautiful, beautiful movie! It's not easy to find this sweet lightness in Italian cinema. "Il Grande Passo" is a modern fairy tale, funny, sweet, moving, led by two great actors, Giuseppe Battiston and Stefano Fresi (Battiston the best among the two of them). Despite a slow start, the movie enchantes you with a magical musical score (by master Pino Donaggio), a soft cinematography and a great group of supporing performers (Camilla Filippi's pretty role deserved more screentime). Even the visual effects are amazing. Director Antonio Padovan gives the best in the most magic moments of the film (the flashbacks of Mario with his father, the grand finale) while some comedy sequences are a bit less inspired. Overall, a great little jem that deserves a long life in the the darkness of a movie theatre. Don't miss it!
