This film would do well in conversation with Fellini's La Dolce Vita and Risi's Il Sorpasso. Beautiful cinematography and an excellent lead performance. Great fodder for discussion concerning how 'entertainment' can inform one's perception of reality.

A light hearted film about a man who strives to get into Big Brother. I don't want to give too much away...the ups and downs of someone who feels star-struck. The cadence of the Italian language, and the setting are added bonuses for this hidden gem of a film.
