"The Joys of the Private Life" - directed by Cristina Comencini
12 May 2005 | by (Virginia, USA) – See all my reviews

"I Divertimenti della vita privata," (1992)is a very amusing Italian-French costume dramedy that takes place in France in the end of 18th Century during the French Revolution. It is "The Marriage of Figaro" meets "The Dangerous Liaisons" and it tells the story of two women, Mathilde Seurat, the actress and Julie Renard, the aristocratic wife and a mother (Delphine Forest plays both) with the same face who came from the different parts of society and at one point exchanged their identities and their lives. The movie also features Giancarlo Giannini and great Vittorio Gassman.

I have to confess my love to Gassman, "The Sir Laurence Olivier of Italy" and his films that I admire: Profumo di donna (1974), C'eravamo tanto amati (1974) ... aka We All Loved Each Other So Much (USA), I Soliti ignoti, (1958) aka Big Deal on Madonna Street (USA). A bit of trivia: Gassman had won every award he was nominated for.
