Fake movie in real movie


The above clip comes from a recent Italian movie titled “L’amore e’ imperfetto”. In one of the scenes, the guy’s striptease, you can see the poster we designed for our fake movie United We Stand, hanging on a wall. We don’t know how our work ended up there, but we find it interesting. Is it there as an artwork, hanging on the wall of a supposed art collector (the guy doing the striptease)? Or is it a movie poster, put there tongue-in-cheek by the movie director, who’s playing with his own audience? Or, finally, is it there just as a poster and no one realized the movie never existed? I guess they are all true, it depends on who is the audience…
