A little added info...
16 October 2002 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

For some reason there's no credit given here for the 1981 Italian film this musical is based on - Ruggero Maccari and Ettore Scola's "Passione d'amore"

  • which, in turn, was based on the novel "Fosca" by Iginio Ugo Tarchetti.


All versions are well worth checking out! :)
