A Magnificent Haunting (Magnifica presenza)
Cert: 15 Year: Length: 105 mins Language: Italian
Score: 80% Attendance: 81
Aspiring actor Pietro (Elio Germano) can't believe his luck when he bags his dream Rome apartment. It's already occupied by the ghosts of a theatrical troupe who vanished during WW2. A gentle comedy about a gay man's attachment to old-school notions of romance, Ferzan Ozpetek's film is reminiscent of Woody Allen at his most whimsical. Nothing happens that's overly dramatic – even the tragedy is treated lightly – but the amiability is infectious.
Winner, Audience Award, Moscow FF (2012)
Winner, Best Actor and Best Supporting Actress, Italian Golden Globe (2012).

It coasts on its charm so much that Ozpetek doesn't even bother resolving half of his subplots.
Charming, funny and just a little twisted Kim Newman, Empire
