Carlo Verdone purest comedy
7 February 2001 | by (London UK) – See all my reviews

Borotalco is the purest example of what Carlo Verdone used to be all about. The mid-life crisis that was to hit the great Roman actor/director, resulting in such movies as "Maledetto il giorno che ti ho incontrato",was still in the distant future.Back then Verdone was still capable of portraying the incredible characters that made him a legend.Angelo Infanti's Manuel Fantoni is alone worth the bother of finding this movie.Mario Brega(of Sergio Leone fame)is at his prime in the role of the ultra-Roman shopkeeper.The movie is a very good comedy that is a must for all Verdone fans.
