Good plot, good acting... and Venice is so grand anyway!
2 March 1999 | by (Vienna, Austria) – See all my reviews

It may not be a masterpiece but I find "Il Fornaretto di Venezia", a mix of thriller/romance/power and lust story set in 16th century Venice, to be one of those movies one likes to have at home and watch from time to time... Of course, you may find the props and costumes a bit 60esque (check the ladies' make-up and hairdos); some of the actors are a bit too emphatic; and the story would gain a lot if we would not get crap like "Il popolo ha innato il senso della giustizia" ("the people has an innate sense of justice", which, as history shows, is not quite true...). BUT on the whole the plot is good, concisely told, excellent music, some excellent acting too (check that young Jacques Perrin, too rarely seen in French cinema lately)... and Venice, as portrayed in the movie, ever so beautiful. It would be grand to have a newer version of it, with much of the original script, and a less moralistic and perhaps slightly more "daring" touch... I mean, we are talking about a story of love, lust, deceipt and power, so... what the hell, right?
