Exceptional film
3 March 2002 | by (Los Angeles, California) – See all my reviews

Amazing Italian film directed by the great Franco Rossi. He was able to show, with a great style and costume satire, a day spent in Los Angeles by an Italian visitor accidentally there for 24 hours while waiting for his visa. Brilliantly acted by a superb cast that includes Enrico Maria Salerno, Renato Salvatori and Annie Girardot and beautifully shot in a sumptuous black and white, this masterpiece of a film still remains after forty years since it was made, the perfect portrait of the city of LA and some of the residents. No movie has ever showed the Los Angeles life in such a funny, romantic, nostalgic way. It is a rare, unique film. Do not miss it, if you can find it!
