Review in 20 Seconds: Primo [TV]

PrimoPrimo, is a one man play based on the memoirs of Primo Levy; A survivor of .

I have to say Anthony Sher’s performance and adaption of the memoirs is amazing, I started watching the program by accident, and couldn’t believe how engaged I was within a few minutes, it is very evident that Sher has stage presence and convincing portrays the persona of Primo.

People often stray away from such awkward subject matter, either fearing a backlash or believing they wouldn’t be able to do it justice. Fortunately Primo suffers neither, and should be a watch for everybody. Its honest and brutal, without employing any other actors other than Sher himself.

An amazing and poignant film.
