Honestly, I didn't like it that much. The special effects and some of the acting are simply awkward.

This version of Pinocchio is as much a social commentary on the times as it is a fairy tale. An extraordinary series, superior in every way to any other version I've seen. Made more for adults than children with Andrea Balestri well cast in the role of the cheeky young Pinocchio.
