Trivia

According to the practice in Italian cinema at the time, most actors (including the Italian ones) are dubbed. A curiosity: The celebrated Italian voice-dubber Rita Savagnone is lending her voice to two actresses (Gina Lollobrigida and Danielle Godet), which is quite unusual as they have scenes together. The result is that the spectator has the impression it is a monologue. Same thing for Pino Colizzi who is also dubbing two actors. See more »

Lollobrigida at 40: simply sublime
9 April 2012 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

I have not read Ercole Patti's novel but Bolognini's UN BELLISSIMO NOVEMBRE seems to be a serious attempt at evoking the Sicilian society depicted by the writer in cinematic terms. This is not a pleasant film. None of the characters are likable and some of them strike one as definitely grotesque. Still, Bolognini shows great understanding of his chosen subject and UBN has many qualities: interesting scenes that comment quite satisfactorily on this particular social milieu, haunting Sicilian locations, excellent cinematography, and a melancholy undercurrent that stays impressed on one's mind. Gina Lollobrigida's Cettina is by far the film's most striking character, a frivolous, amoral woman who does as she pleases in a tightly-controlled, basically rotten family milieu. The actress is most beautiful and portrays her character with her usual intelligence and sensibility, even though most people are unable to see her very real qualities as a performer.
