Love story mixed with a lot of almost boring stuff
24 April 2009 | by (Reus, Spain) – See all my reviews

You can tell by watching this movie that Marcello Mastroianni wanted to depart from his image of romantic lead and that although "Il momento piu bello" has a love story, the film goes by different paths. So I guess Mastroianni was satisfied.

The problem is that this movie doesn't really know where is going, as I say it looks like the love story is the main theme here, but soon it turns into some kind of documentary about painless births, pregnancies and more stuff about maternity (I know, it sounds absurd). The film is watchable because of the two main characters who have real chemistry (after all is Mastroianni we're talking about) and some moments really well done, but more than a feature film it looks like an educational film for pregnant women. An advice: forget about 80 % of the movie and focus in the love story, there lies what's good about it.
