Who could not enjoy De Sica's wild gentleman, and (director) Pagliero keeps the story moving (after the long first scene). Maybe he keeps it too moving, as this film has the feeling that some of the characters motivation material is left on a cutting room floor, somewhere. Good performances all around, though.
It is very interesting to hear many tastes of what would become classic Nina Rota musical figures in the fifties and sixties, couched in the romantic, busy operatic style of the thirties and forties.
I had never heard of this film until NoShame released it, but I am glad to have seen it, a minor bonbon, but a bonbon never the less.
