User Reviews

Mastroianni and Schneider are in fine form; delli Colli's photography is beautiful, as is Benny Goodman's playing, but Dino Risi's story and direction are both old fashioned and way over the top.
8 March 2000 | by See all my reviews

This elegantly mounted romantic thriller has everything going for it except script and direction. Mastroianni and Schneider are excellent; Tonino delli Colli's photography is appropriately dreamy and atmospheric; Riz Ortolani's haunting themes are beautifully played by Benny Goodman, but Dino Risi's usual ability to combine broad comedy with pithy social comment is absent. The wildly old-fashioned plot machinations get sillier and sillier, until you just want it all to stop.
