A film with two great qualities, 18 October 2002
Author: agyanez ( from Italy

I think this film has two great qualities. The first is that you can watch one of the last work of Marcello Mastroianni, the most famous and I think one of the best italian actor of every time. The second is that this film is really a teaching. I remember that, when I watched it the first time, I was hit by the semplicty used to explain the terrible time of fascism in Europe. From then on I am sure that this film can explain better than more words the violence and absurdity of years not so distant.
