A Magnificent Haunting Review

Image for A Magnificent Haunting

When wannabe thesp Pietro (Germano) moves into a new apartment in the Eternal City, little does he know but the place is haunted by the ghosts of a long-vanished theatrical act.


Aspiring actor Pietro (Elio Germano) rents a Rome apartment and finds it haunted by eight members of a theatrical troupe who disappeared in 1943. Director-co-writer Ferzan Ozpetek delivers a delightful, slightly bittersweet comedy with great character byplay and unexpected plot developments.

Charming, funny and just a little twisted, it's The Frighteners in the city of La Dolce Vita.
