The feature film directed by Greta Gerwig apparently did not particularly please the master of Roman comedy.
Barbie this is a recent feature film directed by Greta Gerwig (Little Women, Lady Bird), which brought to the big screen the story of one of the most famous dolls in the world, created by Mattel in the 1960s, which the project embodies Margot Robbie (“Suicide Squad”, “The Wolf of Wall Street”.) With Ryan Gosling (Drive, Blade Runner: 2049) embody a boy Ken. However, the bet on the film did win. Warner Bros. and from Mattel itself, given the film’s great box office success, directly competes with Oppenheimer’s. Despite this, apparently, not everyone appreciated the film, and one of them includes a big name in Italian cinema.
Barbie arrives in Italian cinemas from July 20, 2023.
In an interview with Vanity Fair (via Everyeye.it), Italian actor, director, screenwriter and comedian Carlo Verdone, the great master of the Italian seventh art with his unforgettable feature films, from White, red and green (1981) advertising Water and soap (1983), from Too strong (1986)a Classmates (1988), said he did not particularly appreciate the film, leaving a less enthusiastic opinion of it.
“As he entered, so he came out. Then they immediately scolded me, saying: “No, look, this is a very modern film.” And I don’t criticize them, it’s clear that I missed something (…) (this is a success), but not for Italian cinema. However, this is a film with an idea inside.“.
Among other things, Verdone himself recently also commented on Barbie’s arch cinematic rival: Oppenheimer From Christopher Nolan (Beginning, Dunkirk), the defining biopic “This may be too long a topic, but I love Nolan so much.”. In any case, we remind you that Barbieproduced in particular Heyday Films, LuckyChap Entertainment, Mattel Filmswith Italian distribution Warner Bros. arrived in Italian cinemas exactly on July 20, 2023.
