SUPER FEATURES: The cartoon atmosphere is crazy....
If you like cartoons, and the crazyness which it can bring to those people who work with them, then this is for
you. It is just to bad that the likes of Mel Blanc never really got to film itself, because if he was anything
like his many voices, then you would have a perfect follower in Maurizio Nichetti.
All in all, Maurizio has been a cartoonist for a long time, and many of his designs can be seen in ALLEGRO NON
TROPPO, a beautiful send up to FANTASIA. There were in that film several bits which have now been incorporated
into Maurizio's madness. There was a bit cartoon in the other film which had a postcard fall down on the floor
and a match falls on it. In the little postcard there is a little man drawn. And when the little card catches
on fire, the little character tries to run out of the paper and put the fire out.
VOLERE, VOLARE, is pretty much like that. Maurizio does sound for a film company, and his specialty is cartoons
and shorts. He spends his time looking for sounds for the cartoons, and goes to quite a few gags to get them.
In the process he meets a 'social worker', with whom he inadvertantly falls in love. There is one problem...
as he falls in love with this woman (and she gets more upset) he starts becoming a cartoon, until he is a total
cartoon which is where the film basically ends. The two finaly get together after he explains his situation to
her, and they make love, and another cartoon character tries to censor it from our eyes....
It is a great little gag, and rather funny. The film has slow moments, but all in all it is rather funny, and
strange, and a good evening of fun.
