A Vignettish tale about blind Italo tyke kidnapped by her old grandfather to visit Switzerland in his youth, Azzurro is often charmingly play but way too slim to make much impression beyond Swiss markets and Euro small screens. A reliable cast, lead by veteran Paolo Villaggio as a portly old codger, go through their paces under clean direction by Swiss-Italian Denis Rabaglia in his sophomore outing. Pic make decidedly lightweight closer to this year's Locarno fest. Seventy-five-year-old Giuseppe journeys from Puglia to Geneva with brattish, 7-year-old Carla to call an old debt to pay for her eye operation. Giuseppe spent 30 years working with Gaston in lakeside city but arrived to find him in a sanitarium and his company, now cash-strapped, run by his son. Further revelations of Giuseppes past, and his connection with Gaston's wife, await him. It all tell and shoot in a very rational, precise way. That thoroughly Swiss and ineffably local. Villaggio gives dignity to his role, but pics ultimately soft center pitches it awkwardly between family film and real drama with depth.
