Verdone between two periods of his career
27 April 2006 | by (Rome, Italy) – See all my reviews

I think this is a movie you have to see. We loved the Verdone of 'Un Sacco bello', 'Bianco Rosso e Verdone' and 'Borotalco', the evolution of the Commedia all'Italiana of 60s and 70s. Here we have something different,something more cynic and more sad, but still funny and worth watching. In the same period (end of '80s) a historic participant of the Commedia all'Italiana era, Mario Monicelli, made movies with a similar atmosphere (I am thinking of Parenti Serpenti for example).

I think that Verdone's career is very similar, in its evolution, to Woody Allen's. Woody started playing the funny loser who seldom has a girlfriend, just like Verdone in the first movies. Then, Woody started to change and became a very serious and talented director. Verdone attempted the same road, with success in this movie.

Then the later Woody Allen scored some ups and downs (he did lately very trivial movies, like 'don't drink the water', and wonderful gems, like 'deconstructing harry', 'match point'). In the same way, later on Verdone did useless movies (Il cinese in coma, for example) and some little gem, like Iris Blond.

This movie is in the middle of these two parts of Verdone' carrer. It's a very realistic movie, you will identify with one of the characters for sure. Don't miss this one.
