Storyline

Romeo, a lovelorn Roman musician in his 40s with 20 years since his only hit, consults a fortuneteller who predicts he'll find love and money with a foreign singer named for a flower. In Brussels he meets Marguerite, an older chanteuse who interprets Jacques Brel and loves her yappy dog. Then, late one night, while binging on burgers, he meets Iris, 25, a waitress, free spirit, poet and singer who sleeps with a new man nearly every night. Romeo falls for her, and, better, he puts her poems to music. They form an act. He moves in with her and pays all the bills. She insists it's business, with no romance. What will happen when an important producer hears them perform? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

A HUMOROUS AND MOVING WORK
23 October 2000 | by (Mountain Mesa, California) – See all my reviews

This is a true comedy, graphically detailing the unravelling of a man's ordered existence as the result of romantic obsession. Directed, written and starring Carlo Verdone, the film offers satire, slapstick and pathos in equal amounts. Verdone's co-stars, Claudio Gerini and the veteran Andrea Ferreol, ensure that each scene is harvested of its potential. A bonus is an interesting melange of languages and dialects, served rather well by the subtitles.
