Dictionary of Movie Clichés

​We have all sat watching a film and groaned in jaded horror when the girl being chased by a murderer across level terrain suddenly trips and falls, or cringed with cinematic déjà vu as an eccentric hacker guesses the password to the world’s most sophisticated computer in two attempts. The list of movie clichés is endless, but Cristiano has gathered together some favourite examples to hilarious effect.

The Apartment (Wait a Minute)


A year in the life of the apartment of an aspiring young writer, forever penniless and waiting for someone to recognize his talent. And, as even “sublime minds” need to eat, our man decides to sublet one of the rooms in his home. And so he will make the acquaintance of a series of characters, all different from each other, but with a common denominator: creativity. We meet Massia, who plays guitar with a highly promising band; Pasolo, sculptor and slightly crazy artist; Karin, a Swedish girl seeking for the meaning of life; Jovanna and Corintia, two fashion designers and partners in real life; and, finally, “Kurt”, a rebellious boy fighting against the world and its rules. The James Taylor Quartet album “Wait a Minute” plays as soundtrack to this story, at times dark, at times funny but also dramatic. A story that takes us back to an era when everything seemed possible.
