A delight, Mastroianni in top form...
2 June 2002 | by (Reus, Spain) – See all my reviews

It is always delightful to discover such an outstanding movie completely unknown for you (even with a star in the cast). They're films that you see by chance, maybe you caught them on TV late in the night.

AMORE E GUAI is a magnificent comedy with dramatic touches, a mix (if that is possible) between the freshness of ROMAN HOLIDAY and the sadness from LADRI DI BICICLETTE. It tells the story of some couples in love, who don't know between them, in concrete moments of their relationship. Some stories are more depressing and others are more optimistic, let's call it a 'neorrealist comedy'.

The stories are not in order, they transpose each other like they did in INTOLERANCE, for example, what makes of AMORE E GUAI not a movie of episodes. The two more interesting are the one with Mastroianni, who plays a train waiter and the sweet relationship of an ex-convict and his deaf girlfriend.

A movie that I can recommend to everyone...
