It’s got subtitles in English, French, Hebrew, and Italian for the hearing impaired.
Director Alberto Caviglia pulls out all the stops in this hilarious mockumentary about a boy who loves to hate and devotes his life to promoting antisemitism. You heard me; it’s a comedy.
In Pecore in Erba (Burning Love) it’s July 2006 and Leonardo Zuliani is missing; the whole world is glued to the tv, watching a documentary on the life of the young “hero” who no one has seen for 6 months. Beginning with his childhood, friends, family, and teachers are interviewed, talking about the boy that everyone always knew was “special” and showed an aptitude for inspiring and leading people.
Caviglia takes every stereotype, every prejudice, and every form of hatred toward Jews and spins them around like tops, creating a merry frenzy that is absolutely laugh out loud funny. I loved his refusal to consider anything politically incorrect; nothing under the sun was off -limits.
Starring Davide Giordano, Anna Ferruzzo, Omero Antonutti, Bianca Nappi, Mimosa Campironi, Alberto Di Stasio and Lorenza Indovina, with clever cameos by Carolina Crescentini Margherita Buy and Vinicio Marchioni.
You can get it from ibs.it but remember Americans, it’s only available SO FAR in PAL Zone 2 format so it won’t work with American DVD players unless you have one that is region free.
