Uneven movie
7 February 2006 | by (Cyprus) – See all my reviews

This film has it's moments but we have seen them in other films and done better. Sophia Loren looks more like a tragic heroine from a Greek Drama. She's not bad but not a patch on the Cacoyiannis heroines in Stella and Zorba the Greek. The Sicilian countryside is impressive but was captured more attractively in the Godfather sequences. The film rambles on to it's inevitable conclusion which is unfortunately very badly handled it being stagy and melodramatic. Sophia Loren and Giancarlo Giannini just come out with any credit on the acting stakes and I would like to know if Marcello Mastroianni has ever been as inept. However the real turkey of a performance must go to the lady who plays his mother. All in all a very uneven movie just about watchable if you have nothing better to do.
