Storyline

Two segments: In the first one Felice, a baritone who has had to give up his career because of a heart condition and now works as an accountant at the Opera, inexplicably spends his nights laughing in his sleep. When his best friend, a cripple, takes his life and his wife abandons him Felice decides to die himself. In the second segment two kidnappings in Sicily, the second of which took place a century before the present one, are compared. Written by Salvatore Santangelo <pappagone2@libero.it>

Paolo & Vittorio Taviani, the last true story-tellers of the silver screen.
3 December 2001 | by (amsterdam) – See all my reviews

Paolo & Vittorio Taviani are an enigma that even startle, a bit, the Coen-brothers. They are supposed to be the last true storytellers on the silver screen, and maybe that is true. Whenever they use the books of Luigi Pirandello, it must be true. Alright, this film is very Very good, (although it does not reach the sheer perfection of their KAOS) with all the subtle and cruel differences of emotion mankind has to offer. Available on DVD thanks to the Dutch label Homescreen (only Dutch subtitles and the original Italian language I am afraid), this really is a film not to be missed. Like all the films of these two brothers....
