This is the 360 minute version of "Pinocchio", a co-production of several European public TVnetworks.
Directed by Luigi Comencini, with Nino Manfredi as Geppetto, Andrea Balestri as Pinocchio and Gina Lollobrigida as the Fairy. The mini series consists of 6 episodes, each about 60 minutes long. A charming, funny yet dark adaptation of Carlo Collodi's story of Pinocchio. The basic plot will be familiar to anyone, but the story is much richer than other versions of the all time classic allowed for. The actors in this version are superb, particularly Manfredi as Geppetto and Franchi and Ingrassia as the Cat and the Fox.
