A very good movie

This is a rather unknown and forgotten feature. Honestly, I don't really remember how or why I ended up much watching this flick. My best guest is that there was a good critic in the TV magazine. Anyway, it was eventually a very nice surprise. I don't know why exactly but I found it rather fascinating. Maybe it has to do with the combination of sweet and sour, it was filled with joy and but it had... read more

"15.03. PC/TV, 1st viewing DIRECTED BY Dino Risi This idea could have been executed so much better if the humour were actually funny or if it were tuned down to a minimum, instead letting the dramatic aspects and character psychology play a larger role. As it is, there is too much unnecessary, unfunny bumbling going on with only hints at any character development. I credit most of my enjoyment of the film to its ace soundtrack, laced with rad Italian 1960s pop songs, its pretty cinematography a"

A very good movie

“This is a rather unknown and forgotten feature. Honestly, I don't really remember how or why I ended up much watching this flick. My best guest is that there was a good critic in the TV magazine. Anyway, it was eventually a very nice surprise. I don't know why exactly but I found it rather fascinating. Maybe it has to do with the combination of sweet and sour, it was filled with joy and but it had also some huge sad moments. Even though I know both Jean-Louis Trintignat and Vittorio Gassman, I must admit, I'm rather oblovious about their work but they were both really good. I know, the whole thing was eventually not really original but I really loved the execution. The way they played with the stereotypes and the characters was quite spellbinding, at least, that's my opinion. To conclude, ” read more
