  Italian islands, with an azure sea, brightly painted houses and rocky beaches give off at least since Jean-Luc Godard’s Le Mépris a fantastic setting for trials and tribulations of love. The Swiss director Denis Rabaglia set his second film, Marcello Marcello logically on the fictitious island Amatrello in southern Italy. On Amatrello cavort multifaceted characters around the young hero Marcello (Francesco Mistichelli), seeking their first love: the village teacher, Professor Pizzuti, which wants to encourage the intelligent and sensitive boy to study in Rome, his of life drawn father Mariano, fishermen by trade, the crude Fleischer Rozzani, the pious Padre Don Tommaso, the political correct mayor del Ponte, the dandy-snooty Millionärssöhnchen Armando, the capricious diva, Signora Lombardi, and the magical-girl-like Elena (Elena Cucci). Marcello wants to win his first great love for Elena, and twirls it on the whole village. Finally, he may only run it on a date if he follows an ancient custom Amatrellos: he must hand over Elena’s father, the mayor del Ponte, a gift that these so impressed that he granted his daughter exit. But other gentlemen competing for Elena’s favor. Marcello Whether this task successfully, the audience to explore themselves. Marcello Marcello is about love, fate and questions that plague people have always been: How I spend my life which is my single? I insert myself in my social role or mucke on me? Is our first love is the deepest emotion of the existence or is it a social construction? Rabaglia packaged these questions in an airy, light summer comedy based on the book Marcello’s Date of the British Mark David Hatwood from the year 2004. Rabaglia has adapted the story reviewed together with co-author Luca de Benedittis and location and content and dialogue. He used the motif of the town as a microcosm of life in which human conflicts play in miniature, meet in the characters that are examples of social milieu. He refers back to a favorite subject has always been in Film (Twin Peaks by David Lynch) and literature (Our Town by Thornton Wilder). The comedy Marcello Marcello, a Swiss-German co-production moved, a love story in the Neapolitan society in the fifties of the 20th Century, and paints a loving picture of the time. Nevertheless, the film conventionally staged craft. Because Rabaglia has sense of timing, a meticulous observer with an eye for detail and a big heart for his characters, you can forgive him the waiver of any experimentation, and the fact that here only familiar narrative narrative patterns are repeated. An authentic atmosphere created largely by hand-turned camera point-of-view shots. At most of the times, somewhat pushy and deliberately trimmed Hollywood Score disturbs the overall impression. A harmonically composed little movie gem with seductive flair of Italy, although it is probably only a twinkle summer. (Annette Walter)
