To be honest, I wonder how or why I actually ended up watching this flick. Indeed, it is in fact a rather unknown and forgotten feature and it was definitely pretty obscure. My best guest is that, at the time, there was a very good critic about this movie in our TV magazine. Anyway, I thought it was eventually a very nice surprise. I don't know why exactly but I thought the whole thing was quite rather fascinating. Maybe it had to do with the combination of sweet and sour as it was filled with joy and but also with some huge sad moments. Even though I knew both Jean-Louis Trintignant and Vittorio Gassman, I must admit it, I'm rather oblivious about their work but they were both really good in this movie. 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, even though it is rather obscure and nowadays pretty much forgotten, I thought it was really good and it is definitely worth a look, especially if you are interested in Italian movies.
