Quite a funny film actually, ..about holidaying,courtship,and high society
22 December 2004 | by (Rome,Italy) – See all my reviews

......certainly better than the winter holiday version 'Vacanze d'inverno' of 1959, the 'brevi amori..' film is more similar to 'venezia,la luna, e tu' from 1958. Unlike the latter film, 'brevi amori..' is 100% comedy, where Alberto Sordi 'Anselmo Pandolfini' , plays the role of an ugly, persistent, and (initially) annoying courtier/admirer to a beautiful actress, high society ?, young woman. At first he is laughed of, especially by his ultra handsome rival, but with his firm insistence, and gradually emerging charm, he seduces the lady, to the total shocked surprise of his rival. All this in the settings of a beach holiday in the exclusive(only in the 1950's) resort of Palma de Majorca, Spain. Entertaining throughout, with rare boring moments, ideal if you want to kill two hours, but it will difficult that is film will re-emerge from some dusty cellar of a film production company.Increasingly it is difficult to see Alberto Sordi films from the 1950's and 1960's in Italy, let alone abroad(but still 20 or so of his films are sold on Italian Internet DVD shopping sites). My vote a well deserved 7
