Occhi dalle stelle
A really science fiction year, 1978, for Mario Gariazzo. In addition to
shot a great trash pearl like “Incontri ravvicinati…di un
certo tipo", Garriazzo also direct "Occhi dalle stelle". And if one has
seen the first and not the second, perhaps he expects the same theme,
vaguely sci-fi and very naughty. Instead, "Occhi dalle stelle" is
actually very different, because it follows the alien conspiracy
seriously, developing a thesis that today would be the manifesto of
several, conspiracy’s groups on various social networks.
"Occhi dalle stelle" A part following the footsteps of the well-known
Spielberg movie, for the first 10 minutes it’s a great film, with
a beginning, extravagant but very interesting. Unfortunately then the
film embraces an excessive slowness, broken sometimes by some "twist"
and by some scoundrel. The extreme poverty of the production certainly
does not help this film in which Gariazzo signs as Roy Garret, not to
be outdone by an international cast and for obvious commercial reasons.
However, we are not at the level of seeing the wire that holds the
flying UFOs, but the aliens in silver tracksuit with blue helmets are
more funny than frightful. However Gariazzo is very
serious and tries to do everything as dramatic as possible, with a
story that starts with a photographer who realizes, after a photo shot
in the woods with a model, that strange figures have remained imprinted
on the film. Are the aliens who have come to earth.
Tony Harris (the Austrian Robert Hoffmann) journalists investigate on
this case, with a well-known ufologist, tries to shed light on the
incident. However, the police led by Inspector Grant (Martin Balsam)
try to cover up everything with the help of a group of secret services
"the silence group" or "The Silencers" who does not want the news
spread. Among betrayals like Harris' secretary, played by Nathalie
Delon ex-wife of Alain enters in the plot even a medium ends up in the
middle. Boredom aside is a non-negligible film.
