Recently Netflix unveiled the excellent series Alice in Borderland , which we hope to soon discover a season 2 . If the platform makes fictions its trademark, it also specializes more and more in films and series inspired by real events. This is particularly the case of the opus The incredible story of the island of the rose, in which we meet Giorgio Rosa, a wacky engineer who creates more and more crazy things, simply “because he can do it”. One day, when his parents and friends criticized him for not doing anything concrete with his life, Giorgio decided to build an island. Head for the coast of Rimini, on the Adriatic coast, in the heart of international waters. With his hands, Giorgio Rosa designs and finances himself this platform of 100 square meters, hanging from 26 meters above water on iron stilts. He creates his island, with his own language, his own flag and his own rules. More and more Italian citizens are asking to obtain the nationality of the Republic of Rose Island, enough to attract the wrath of the government of the neighboring country. So what is the movie The Incredible Story of the Isle of the Rose worth on Netflix ? Here is our review.

Films and series inspired by real facts never have the same weight as fiction, especially when we are told the story of a man who created his own island. It was in 768 and it is simply extraordinary. Of course the real Georgio Rosa, who died in 1964, had given its approval for Netflix to transcribe its story . It must be said that the director Sydney Sibilia had a major role to play: it was necessary to tell all the vicissitudes that had arisen in the life of this Italian engineer taken by madness. And its mission was perfectly successful: the opus is at the same time funny, moving and stressful, especially when one discovers how the history of the island of the rose ended.
