Struggling gay actor Pietro-Elo Germano ( who has OCD and who may be seriously depressed ) rents a rundown apartment in a seedy part of Rome. His life is complicated by a pregnant best friend ( Margharita Buy) a bullied transvestite ( Daniele Luchetti) a dishy gay neighbour ( Alessandro Roja) oh and the ghosts of eight Turkish/ Italian actors who take over his apartment and who have no clue that they are in fact dead.
A Magnificent Haunting ( at Theatre Clwyd this evening)is a meandering little film that doesn't really go anywhere. Characters pop up with very little resolution in their story lines, and at one point a mysterious drag queen " godfather" looms threateningly into the fray....then disappears without trace, but in the great scheme of things, that doesn't really matter as the whole thing is rather a sweet natured and charming ghost story/ study about loneliness
Dishy gay neighbours only exist in movie land
