Quite a funny film actually, ..about holidaying,courtship,and high society
......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
