Absolutely special interpretative performances
8 May 2016 | by See all my reviews

Since starting writing about this film, I found out that Laura Antonelli died last year, in 2015. I was immediately filled with thrills, she died so discreet. It was one of the actresses I've been in love as a teenager (before her as a child, I was in love with Virna Lisi, dead too just 6 months before). What a beautiful woman Antonelli, such grace, those eyes, that body, that voice. Those who believe that she was just a sex symbol, they are wrong, she was first an exceptional actress. Especially in Visconti's film, L'Innocent (1976) and The Divine Nymph (1975), directed by Giuseppe Patroni Griffi. This Hypochondriac (1979) (Il malato immaginario original title), confirms again, Laura makes an excellent role. Along with probably the greatest entertainer of all time, the great, the unique Alberto Sordi. They are joined by several more great names of cinema: Bernard Blier, Marina Vlady, Vittorio Caprioli, Giuliana de Sio. Beautiful music by Piero Piccioni and great cinematography by Armando Nannuzzi.
