Favolacce is just a prentious movie.
The DOP is at times really good, but most of the times is trying too much to appear impressive for its own sake: it's like you bought your niece the new camera he was asking for and you just explained to him the rule of thirds.
None of the characters has a clear or interesting arc and there's no main plot pushing the movie forward. Everyone is passively waiting for the story to end. Even the worst tale has the most basic story arc or a main character pushing the story forward, something that the narrator does for the first 5 minutes of the movie, before completely disappearing.
The sound design is at times really lacking and you can barely make out what the characters are saying (especially in the bus scene).
Overall is definitely not worth watching and it is kind of sad, because I really thought that the trailer looked promising and maybe something good would come out of Italy again.
