Worth seeing once
27 August 2000 | by (Houston) – See all my reviews

A charming film, set in 1880's Rome. It's a little different. Dominique Sanda was excellent, mixing a child-like innocent look with the scheming greed of a woman. Her beauty really adds to this film. The sniveling Pippo and Mario, and the pompous Paolo, were pretty good roles. I've never heard of the Italian actors who played them. Anthony Quinn was good, totally becoming his character. The ending, while not shocking, was unexpected. The version I saw was dubbed into English. Something odd about this and other Italian films I've seen. It looks like (from the lip movement) that some of the actors are speaking in Italian and others are speaking in English. Maybe the dubbing and translation was just done that well. This is certainly a film worth seeing once.
