Storyline

A group of Italians take a flight to Sweden - but among them there are the tourists, and the immigrants. Two bourgeois couples choose a typical Italian restaurant by its name, 'La Trattoria', and are disgusted by the poor service and its untidiness. An elegant lady in her splendid Ferrari is accosted by an Italian and imagines a flirt, but he's all eyes - for the car. An Italian wife finds the husband in bed with another woman, but he is so good with his explanation that she ends up believing it was all her fault for not being enough time with him...

AN INTELLIGENT AND BEAUTIFUL FILM
7 January 2018 | by See all my reviews

IT IS A TYPE OF FILM THAT HAS ALMOST DISAPPEARED: THE SPECTATOR IS PERMANENTLY ALLUDED AND PERMANENTLY HE IS OBLIGED TO REFLECT, BESIDES SMILING ... OR TO BE EXCITED. IT IS NOT ONLY A HUMORISTIC FILM, IT IS NOT ONLY A FILM OF SOCIAL CRITICISM, IT IS A TESTIMONIAL FILM OF A CULTURE. AND IT IS ALSO A BEAUTIFUL CINEMATOGRAPHIC WORK: WELL INTERPRETED, WELL PHOTOGRAPHED, WELL DIRECTED. THE 1960'S, ESPECIALLY IN ITALY, SHOWED UNFORGETTABLE WORKS IN THE INTELLIGENT LINE AND HIGH QUALITY LEVEL. IN SOME HAPPY WAY, THE STEPS OF "LA DOLCE VITA" BY FEDERICO FELLINI WERE FOLLOWED. AND "MADE IN ITALY" IS ALSO A TESTIMONY OF THE TERRIBLE FORCE OF CENSORSHIP: I HAVE SEEN THIS FILM THREE TIMES AND THE THREE TIMES HAD DIFFERENT DURATION. THE FIRST TIME WAS 1966 (AROUND 95 MINUTES OF LENGTH), THE SECOND TEN YEARS AGO (100 MINUTES) AND THE THIRD ONE WAS A FEW HOURS AGO (ABOUT 120 MINUTES). UNFORCEABLY IT IS NOT ONLY AN ANTIPATHIC FILM TO CONSERVATIVE MENTALITY BUT TO RELIGIOUS BELIEVERS. POVERTY, SELFISHNESS, IGNORANCE, SUFFERING ARE REFLECTED HERE IN AN IMPLACABLE FORM AT TIMES, BUT ALWAYS WITH A HIGH CONCEPT OF CINEMATOGRAPHIC ART. "MADE IN ITALY" IS, FROM ALL POINT OF VIEW, ONE OF THE TEN BEST ITALIAN FILMS OF ALL TIMES AND ONE OF THE GREATEST 100 OF THE WORLD CINEMATOGRAPHY.
