Serie Tv: Boris


L'Italia vista con gli Occhi del Cuore di un pesce rosso


- Alessandro Pangallo


Chi ha detto che noi italiani non sappiamo fare serie tv degne dell'industria telefilmica statunitense? Certo, non avremo produttori pronti a far girare una serie su un'isola deserta, ma tutto sommato, con un po' di sana auto-ironia e un cast di attori emergenti non c'è necessariamente bisogno di guardare oltre l'Atlantico per trovare una telefilm ben realizzato. Nel Fox ha lanciato la serie tv Boris, e tale è stato il successo che la trasmissione ha riscosso che ne è già in lavorazione una seconda serie, la quale andrà in onda dal . Per tutti coloro che non sanno di cosa stiamo parlando, cerchiamo di fare una rapida presentazione di questa brillante serie televisiva made in Italy.

Il mondo che la serie vuole ritrarre è quello delle soap opera all'italiana (quei papponi televisivi fatti di lacrime e tradimenti che vanno in onda nel primo pomeriggio): a coordinare l'azione sul set c'è l'istrionico regista René (interpretato da Francesco Pannofino, già visto in Notturno Bus e noto ai più per essere la voce italiana di Gorge Clooney), un mago della telecamera che però è costretto a dover girare un'autentica porcata, una soap opera dal titolo Gli Occhi del Cuore. René si dovrà divincolare per tutto l'arco delle riprese tra gli ordini che gli arrivano dall'alto (come quello di non realizzare una buona fotografia, ma di limitarsi a "smarmellare tutto" in modo tale che gli spettatori siano più reattivi di fronte agli spot pubblicitari che davanti alla soap opera) e attori raccomandati e incapaci, ma che si atteggiano a star di prima grandezza.

Le peripezie del cast degli Occhi del Cuore non sono nient'altro che una scusa per scherzare un po' sui mali dell'Italia: il fatto che René non possa fare efficientemente il proprio mestiere a causa di raccomandazioni e pressioni dall'alto rappresenta efficacemente uno spaccato di quest'Italia dalle mille inefficienze, ma in cui di fatto coloro che si rimboccano le maniche e fanno il loro lavoro vedono comunque crescere di giorno in giorno la stima nei loro confronti, quasi a mo' di riscossa morale. Vedere René, con la sua faccia cartoonesca, rassicurare l'unico altro membro diligente della troupe, l'assistente di regia Arianna, riesce comunque a ristabilire un ordine delle cose, quantomeno dal punto di vista della scala di valori.

A interpretare questa serie tv troviamo a sorpresa un cast fatto di nomi piuttosto altisonanti: oltre al già citato Pannofino, abbiamo Caterina Guzzanti (la "Biondish" dell'Ottavo Nano, sorella di Corrado e Sabina Guzzanti), Carolina Crescentini, Alessandro Tiberi, Pietro Sermonti, tanti volti nuovi dell'industria cinematografica italiana su un set che comunque si poggia costantemente sulle solide spalle del protagonista René.

Delle quindici puntate di cui si è composta la prima serie, sicuramente le più spassose sono state quelle in cui veniva introdotta qualche guest star. In particolare, citiamo la partecipazione di Giorgio Tirabassi nella puntata "Una giornata particolare": levati i seriosi panni dell'agente di polizia, Tirabassi si rende protagonista di una performance comica da antologia, in cui ogni tanto si dà anche alla pazza gioia improvvisando qualche battuta sul momento.

Un prodotto fatto e pensato per il pubblico dell'italica penisola, quindi, anche se difficilmente chi si sentirà "parte in causa" delle prese in giro degli autori lo apprezzerà: vedere René affibbiare costantemente al proprio prodotto degli epiteti come "mondezza", "zozzeria" o "porcata", guardarlo mentre chiama "cani" i propri attori e via dicendo farà anche ridere, ma a quel pubblico che effettivamente vive di pane, soap opera e Amici di Maria De Filippi non credo che farà troppo piacere venire essere presi ripetutamente per i fondelli...

Vale la pena dargli uno sguardo, ma sappiate che è un prodotto nato con l'intenzione di rimanere per un pubblico di nicchia.

Tv series: Boris


Italy seen with the Eyes of the Heart of a goldfish


- Alessandro Pangallo


Who said that Italians can't make tv series worthy of US tv series industry? Sure, Italians will not have producers ready to make shoot a series on a desert island, but all in all, with a little healthy self-irony and a cast of emerging actors there isn't necessarily need to look across the Atlantic to find a tv series well done. In , Fox launched the TV series Boris, and such was the success that the transmission has collected that is in production a second series, which will air from . For those who don't know what we're talking about, let's do a quick presentation of this brilliant television tv series made in Italy.

The world that the series wants to portray is that of the Italian soap opera (those television products made of tears and betrayals that are broadcast in the early afternoon): to coordinate action on the set there is the histrionic director René (played by Francesco Pannofino, already seen in Notturno Bus (Nocturne Bus) and best known for being the Italian voice of George Clooney), a magician of the camera which is forced to have to shoot a real crap, a soap opera entitled Gli occhi del cuore (The eyes of the Heart). René will have to struggle throughout the whole of the shootings between the orders that arrive from above (such as that to not make a good photography, but to limit to "smarmellare tutto" (open all) so that the spectators are more reactive in front of the advertising spots rather than in front of the soap opera) and recommended and incapable actors, but who pose as stars of the first order.

The vicissitudes of the cast of the Occhi del Cuore (Eyes of the Heart) are nothing more than an excuse to fool around a bit about the evils of Italy: the fact that René can not do his job efficiently due to recommendations and pressure from above represents effectively a glimpse of this Italy with a thousand inefficiencies, but where in fact those who roll up their sleeves and do their job anyway see grow day by day the estimate towards them, as a moral rescue. See René, with his cartoony face, reassure the only other diligent member of the crew, the first assistant director Arianna, still manages to re-establish an order of the things, at least from the point of view of the scale of values.

To play this tv series there is surprisingly a cast of rather high-sounding names: besides the already mentioned Pannofino, there's Caterina Guzzanti (the "Biondish" of the Ottavo Nano (Eighth Dwarf), sister of Corrado and Sabina Guzzanti), Carolina Crescentini, Alessandro Tiberi, Pietro Sermonti, many new faces of the Italian film industry on a set that anyway relies constantly on the strong shoulders of the protagonist René.

Of the fifteen episodes of which is composed the first series, surely the funniest were those in which it was introduced some guest star. In particular, we mention the participation of Giorgio Tirabassi in the episode "Una giornata particolare" (A particular day): take off the serious clothes of the agent of Police, Tirabassi becomes the protagonist of an anthological comic performance, where occasionally also gives himself to the mad joy improvising some line on the moment.

A product done and thought for the Italian public, so, even if hardly those who will feel "called in cause" of the teasings of the authors will appreciate it: see René constantly attribute to his product some epithets as "rubbish", "filth" or "crap", watch him while call "dogs" his own actors and so on it will also laugh, but at that audience who actually live by bread, soap operas and Amici di Maria De Filippi (Friends by Maria De Filippi) I don't think that it will be too pleased to be repeatedly pissed off...

It's worth taking a look, but be aware that it's a product designed with the intention to stay for a niche audience.
