Francesco De Rosa
"Che ora è?" is a great minimalist movie, since it makes you feel the love, and in the same time the disease between a father and a son through simple attitudes, and words ("what time is it?"!!). And such feelings can make you suffer - but a little bit, but in a light way
since they are true. Marcello Mastroianni and Massimo Troisi are
so perfect playing their parts, that you may believe Marcello to be your father and Massimo to be your son. It's a shame this is not one of the most famous movies by Ettore Scola, also in Italy.
