| One of the best Italian satire
I don't know if this could be a product interesting to export, but the idea is simple and original, the life inside a set of a TV serial. In Italy is common to make these awful productions, perhaps because anybody (or anybody without a proper culture) can appreciate these kind of soap operas. Those are not serials, like E.R, X-Files, or Doctor House, and they lack of imagination. "Boris" mocks every TV serial, especially one called "Incantesimo": bad recitation, bad scenes, the worst photography ever. It is so funny! Watch it. It's the best Italian comedy of these years. A good product, indeed. Nonetheless "Boris" has some of the bests Italian actors, some of them scarcely known by the public; for example the director, René (with his goldfish, Boris, which gives the title to the show), is interpreted by Francesco Pannofino, a singer, poet and actor, who gives the voice to many foreigner actors (George Clooney, to make an outstanding example). Another actress that requires a special mention is Caterina Guzzanti. The Guzzanti brothers (Corrado and Sabina are the other two), actors and comedians are good, but Caterina is simply astonishing sometimes. In this show it plays the part of Arianna, the director assistant, the most motivated and less hypocrite person of the all crew. Because, you know, it doesn't matter the level, could be a Z movie (or serial in this case), but phoniness is something so rooted in this world of entertainment, that sometimes it seems required to survive. I don't know if they'll make other seasons (we are waiting for a third), but hope so. Finally a TV show entirely Italian and, more important, of good quality!
