| Dormant Italy
I liked Maurice Yacowar review and I agree mostly in what is saying, but for me is missing a jump in the analysis in order to see not only the factual elements but also the implicit meaning of the film. I think that the film is trying to show the sleeping Italy with Berlusconi and the beginning of the wake up. Although various review critic the political episode, for me it is clear the similarity of the actual way of doing politic with the Roman Empire, including the hot bath, the tunics. In the end, when Rosa the drugged woman opens the window and do not pull down, it is clear that life is gaining and Italy is waking and can live again.
