"Tutti A Casa" is dramatic, funny, committed and realistic
4 October 2015 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

After the armistice of 8 September 1943, Italy changed sides in the world war, in alliance against Nazi Germany, leaving many bewildered Italian army units while still preparing to face the invasion. Some of these units were joined by new allies, however a number of them decided to dissolve, deserting in droves. This is the story of "Tutti A Casa", the best film of Luigi Comencini ("Pane, Amore E Fantasia" 1953, "Incompreso" 1966, "The Scopone Scientifico" 1972, "La Donna Della Domenica", 1975), portrait tragicomic key to the aftermath of the surrender of the Italian army, and confusion of the early days.

The script belongs to a great Italian duo who have worked hand in dozens of films, Agenore Incrocci and Furio Scarpelli ("Persons Unknown", "The Armada Brancaleone" or "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly" are proof of this), create a fluid history, humanist, pointedly blending humor, drama, war genre, this smart, sharp and funny dialogue, creating moments that move between humor, tension and bitterness and meanness, a ' Road-Movie "which beautifully reflects what happened in Italy at this time, as they suffered the hardships of conflict, hunger, xenophobia, violence, death, carrying the director Luigi Comencini an exquisite ray of the complex Human Condition, how to act in extreme situations, touching on topics such as compassion, friendship, sense of duty, nihilism, commit to a cause, family values, racism, the black market, hunger, the beauty of the music, a tragicomedy remarkable framed in a bloody environment. We talk about everything from how the protagonist, reflecting who does not want to take sides in a journey through a devastated Italy begins to feel the duty of not being neutral, realize who the bad and we must fight against them. Comencini very naturally knows how to find the balance between pure and drama finding humor in human misery, this in the context of a landscape devastated by the Rider War in which people struggle for survival.

It has a seemingly simple but brutal work, to get you deep inside script. Although it sounds a bit cliché of itself it can be said: Displays from the primary we have more people, even the most sublime. From hunger, able to make anyone forget its values, to compassion for someone we barely know. Betrayal, indifference, lies, but also the love of family, forgiveness and the beauty of art (in this case, music).

The staging is very naturalistic, oozes realism, truthfulness, quasi-documentary airs, it is assumed in the Veneto, the great work of production designer Carlo Egidi ("La Lunga Notte 43", "Marriage All'italiana" or "Divorzio ALL'ITALIANA") but shot in Livorno and the surrounding countryside, and even in areas ruined by WWII, as a curiosity Minister Giulio Andreotti refused to pay 2 tanks and made of plywood, all reaching in high grade authenticity, which helps to photograph raw Carlo Carlini ("Il Generale Della Rovere"), heat is palpable, feels sweaty sun, dry dust of the road, with beautiful general shots, serving to emit the territory He was collapsed deep Italy.
