Commedia all'italiana's last masterpiece
30 August 2002 | by (Paris, France) – See all my reviews

20 years after the monumental "I mostri" which was a great example of Italian sketch comedy, 3 of the greatest Italian directors ever (Risi, Monicelli, Scola) the best Italian writers ever (Age, Scarpelli) the best Italian actors ever (Tognazzi, Gassmann, Sordi) one of the most beautiful woman in the world (Ornella Muti) participate to this great tribute. The last sketch (a funeral) is symbolic : the death of the Italian comedy, which made Italy the second country in the world for cinematographic productions during 50's and 60's. Roberto Benigni's "Life is beautiful" was a great attempt, but the Italian comedy (and Italian cinema) is still in the grave.
