Storyline

Burned-out, over-the-hill actor Giovanni returns to Bologna for the funeral of his twin, Pippo, a wealthy suicide unlucky in love. The family tells Pippo's mother it was an accident, but there's a problem: Vanda, Pippo's one-time fiancée, won't grieve and refuses to come to the funeral. At a family dinner, Vanda talks about the note Peppo left. Again the family tries to keep mom in the dark. They assign Giovanni to persuade Vanda to keep up appearances. He sees her unhappy relationship with her father, who suspects her of sleeping with a doctor. Why she sees the doctor, how Giovanni and she deal with their mutual attraction, and his rebirth become the film's focus. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

"The eyes, the mouth" and the rest of this movie stink.
13 December 2008 | by (Argentina) – See all my reviews

I will not make much of a review since the other comment by Rsoonsa makes a splendid dissection of this terrible movie. I just saw it --although it was produced in 1982-- just because Angela Molina was in it, but I don't know if it was due to bad photography or just the inevitableness of time going by, that even this far back (1982) she doesn't look at her best, (an euphemism to be kind to her).

The guy is simply horrid (another euphemism), so among the two of them made the watching of this movie quite depressing. But all the other actors contributed, with a vengeance, to this general impression.

A coursed movie, obviously. From beginning to end. A child frightener of a movie.

Who knows why everybody was so unspeakably bad. The catering was less than good? The salaries were too low? Everybody had another job appointment more important than this one and they where itching to go?

Nobody will ever know.

And since the movie is from 1982 probably most of the cast is dead by now or in some elderly home, asking their visiting younger relatives: And who are you my Dear?

Well, thank you Rsoonsa so much for such an excellent commentary. And now I leave you all because I'm rushing to the back yard to burn my copy of "Gli occhi, la bocca".

I do not want to be responsible for future generations going through the torture of watching this movie by any chance as long as I can prevent it.
