Adrian Seventh Evening | Review


Published on Nov 22, 2019


The sixth evening of Adrian has marked a turning point for the entire series, now entering its final phase: Darian is in a stopped state and its revolution, seems to have suffered a major setback, with the Friends of the Watchmaker were astonished and afraid.

If, on the one hand, therefore, the Doctor Dranghestein known as The Dissanguatore (convincing, up to now, the villain is voiced by Claudio Moneta) believes it has solved its problems and be able to finally start the largest project of speculation, the Guild finally finds out that he is actually Adrian.

Together with the Bear, Coal and Johnny Silver, the tried and trusted team of Adrian, the girl is determined to save his beloved from the clutches of the government, which by now everyone knows torturing the befana Darian in prison.

The series is now at a turning point, and last night launched a number of positive points for the narrative development: illusion or real “surge”? To us, this seventh evening.


The beating sent, by the same Darian, on the screens citizens, has raised the awareness of the population and given to Friends of the Watchmaker's new initiative: in all the cities of Italy are popular leaflets that are reminiscent of the terrifying event.

On the other hand, the government is having to deal with these small acts of “guerrilla warfare”, with the pressure of the Dissanguatore (whose aims are destructive, are in the meantime directed towards Liguria) and through the intercession of the mayor, the treatment of Darian in prison becomes more and more “human”, in order to avoid the association of the figure of the Watchmaker, that of a martyr.

While in the city the Guild, Bear, Coal, Johnny Silver and Marco can endanger their lives to escape Adrian from prison, the same brings her own revolution, made of freedom and beauty, in prison, linking with some of the prisoners.


The dramatic narrative of the last evening is not taken up and developed in this seventh night: the presence of Darian in prison, proposes to the public, in the same formula, the topoi of the series, slowing down again the narration without the “freshness” that, at this point in the series, you expect it to.

To “weigh down” further to this aspect, the continuous rhetoric (as much as can be shared, now monotonous inside of episodes) burdened by the choices directors (filming or photographs of the real world punctuated by pieces animated) completely alienating in a negative sense, that is not enriched plots, but rather weakens further.

The “action” of the episode is insufficient, highlighting the technical limitations that the animation of Adrian has already shown: too clear the distinction between drawings and computer graphics, with the latter certainly not of the first order.

Approaching now the end of”the epic animated” Celentano, we expected not a change of overall tone, but less than a concrete narrative turn resulting in the evolution of the characters, who seem rather banal, set in their “type”, almost like wearing the mask of a pantomime.

Among the common places and scenes of pathos, we find in the finale of the evening was the introduction of some interesting characters, full of humanity, and from the high expressive potential. It's not enough to declare sufficient, on the whole, the episodes are offered, but may be a positive point from which the later episodes might split.

More space to the”human”, which is represented by the other characters, and less of the “myth” Celentano would undoubtedly be more functional in conveying the message that the series contains within itself, as well as for the development of a story almost come to an end, which is likely is likely to prove only as a personal self-congratulation.
