Trivia

According to the film's producer and director, Sharon Stone was very difficult to work with. She had made all kind of outrageous demands before appearing in the movie, like being brought to the Italian set in a specially modified train, and the right to choose her own wardrobe in the movie. The production was nearly bankrupted before filming had even started because Stone had selected exclusive Bvlgari clothes (which she could buy after production for a fraction of its original price). During filming of her last scene, she spotted a cameraman of the Italian TV filming, immediately left the set and informed the director through her manager in Los Angeles that she wouldn't reappear unless the cameraman was removed.

mediocre and underdeveloped
20 September 2014 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

This is the typical movie which you end watching by saying: it could have been much more. There are good, perhaps too many, starting points: the father-son relationship, the interaction folly-creativity, an editorial world impossible to enter, together with the reflection upon a mediocre Italian cinematography belonging to the past, but still living in the present. Unfortunately, they remain suspended, only hinted at, and are also devalued by a sometimes banal script. As far as acting, the cast seems subdued: Scamarcio is a little monotonous, Sharon Stone proves once again how she is ageing splendidly, but her character is penalized by a terrible dubbing, which stresses more her innocent rather than manipulative nature, and some characters are either unexplored (the student) or useless (the girlfriend). The only exception is Giovanna Ralli playing the mother, offering a very heartfelt interpretation. What remains is a sense of incompleteness, which could be interesting if it left material to think about, but this is not the case, where it looks more like the result of a sort of tiredness by the director, who can't soar to great heights or at least to an expected higher level.
