'Pasquini really impresses in both characters, the flamboyant Paola in particular is a real highlight and deserves her own sketch show' { ...a sketch show with two characters? Yes Please!}

film facts
Pasquini regularly ropes in her brother for a filmic sibling collab, as they say in the business…, paying him nothing but artistic satisfaction and a box of store-home-made brownies. He’s an award-winning cinematographer and editor in his own right, and what a right he has, go fetch: Alex Pasquini
