[quote=“scherpschutter, post:3, topic:1492”]Thanks. Would you believe I had never heard of this film?
Where was I in '78 ?
It’s always a nice idea, people or bullets coming from the screen, stepping or flying into the lives of the spectators
The problem often is that you’re limited to a joky style and content, the idea simply doesn’t work in a coontext that is too serious
I remember a film by Woody Allen in which a character steps out of his movie to meet his most loyal fan and starts an affair with her. It was a rather nice Woody comedy, but you noticed that Woody eventually felt he had cornered himself a little. There was some chemistry between the person and the movie character, but a happy end (they lived happily ever after - where?) was impossible.[/quote]
Yes, the Woody Allen film you mention is Purple Rose of Cairo which does play with this idea quite well but eventually decides to ‘restore normality’ at the end. Quite a sad end for a comedy actually.
[quote=“Dillinger, post:4, topic:1492”]This flick seem to be a kind of “Last Spaghetti Hero”.
Ofdb.de says that there is no DVD-version of the movie. Too sad, cause it seems to be an interesting one… ofdb.de rates it wit 9/10![/quote]
Don’t know about 9/10. I saw the film on a DVD-R rip from a vhs with italian audio and greek subs so I accept that I may have missed some nuances in the dialogue but I still believe I got what was required. And it was an interesting idea quite well played out but nothing really special I don’t believe. Worth seeing if you can get hold of a copy (I passed mine on to a friend a little while ago) but don’t expect an earth shattering experience.
P.S. I think Atlas Visuals have it if anyone really wants a copy.
