A Special Day

3 years, 1 month ago at Feb 27 20:23
Anytime I see the names Sophia Loren and Marcello Mastroianni together in a movie I always get high hopes. Who could forget their spicy and sexy comedies Marriage Italian Style or Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow? Or their sublime but difficult and depressing Sunflower? A Special Day is humane, sensitive and presents a similar political scheme with the novel Mrs. Dalloway: that one day, that one brie... read more

"Turhautunutta kotiäitiä esittävä, meikitön Sophia Loren ja turhautunutta homoseksuaalia esittävä - myöskin meikitön - Marcello Mastroianni kohtaavat sattumalta fasistisessa Italiassa, päivänä, jolloin kaikki muut ovat Adolfin ja Beniton bileissä. Itsemurhaa hautova Mastroianni yllättyy Lorenin viattomista lähestymisestä, johon hän vastaa samoin. Paitsi Loren tulkitsee miehen - kenen tahansa miehen - positiivisen huomion seksuaalisena lähestymisenä. Molemmat ymmärtävät tois"

A Special Day

“Anytime I see the names Sophia Loren and Marcello Mastroianni together in a movie I always get high hopes. Who could forget their spicy and sexy comedies Marriage Italian Style or Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow? Or their sublime but difficult and depressing Sunflower? A Special Day is humane, sensitive and presents a similar political scheme with the novel Mrs. Dalloway: that one day, that one brief encounter can profoundly change your life and open your world. They also share the common thread of a housewife going about her normal business before tiny tremors in her life present the facts and details that have always been in front of her in sharp detail. She always saw them, but they were blurred and located in the edges of her vision. Mastroianni's character never truly evolves or changes” read more

"7.1, DVD Koitin jotenkin ennattoluulottomasti lähteä elokuvan sisään, sillä pahemmin en muutenkaan elokuvasta ennestään ollut kuullut. Ehkä tämän vuoksi Kohtaaminen Roomassa onnistuu jollain ihmeellisellä tasolla liikuttamaan, mutta samalla tasolla elokuva jättää yllättävänkin kylmäksi. Hienosti elokuva käsittelee muutaman tunnin sisällä syntyvää rakkaustarinaa. Ennestään tuntemattomat ihmiset tapaavat toisensa täysin sattumanvaraisesti tapahtumasarjan luovan ympärist"
