Storyline

In 1996, Marcello Mastroianni talks about life as an actor. It's an anecdotal and philosophical memoir, moving from topic to topic, fully conscious of a man ^Óof a certain age^Ô looking back. He tells stories about Fellini and De Sica's direction, of using irony in performances, of constantly working (an actor tries to find himself in characters). He's diffident about prizes, celebrates Rome and Paris, salutes Naples and its people. He answers the question, why make bad films; recalls his father and grandfather, carpenters, his mother, deaf in her old age, and his brother, a film editor; he's modest about his looks. In repose, time's swift passage holds Mastroianni inward gaze. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Long but Well Worth Seeing
24 August 1999 | by (New York, USA) – See all my reviews

Romano Rating: 77%

A humorous and self-deprecating look at the life of a 72-year-old Italian film icon in his own words. Had it been edited down to less than two hours, this biographical documentary might well have been even more enjoyable to watch. It is still well worth seeing, there are some wonderful anecdotes and brilliant scenes from Mastroianni's films and stage appearances. But at 3 hours and 18 minutes, you may be better off renting it on video and taking breaks.

To Remember: "When I was young, life seemed long and endless to me."

"This is a marvelous profession, you're paid to play and everyone applauds."
