Fifth about The Seventh

Human Capital (Il Capitale Umano)

Human CapitalHuman Capital: Paolo Virzì’s film tells a reasonably interesting story, but it’s the fractured structure that makes it work somewhat. However, the gallery of characters is generally uninteresting and hard to relate to; Valeria Bruni Tedeschi and Matilde Gioli are given the more interesting (or at least, bearable) characters to play, and come up on top because of it. The film is slickly made (characters, costumes and settings all well-designed and executed), but the whole exercise is somewhat empty and cold.
