Storyline

Good intentions unsuccessful result.
12 November 2007 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

This movie, remade twice Ich und Er (1988) and Harte Jungs (2000), basically failed to be a good rendering of Alberto Moravia 1971 novel "Io e lui". The plot is simple and original since it follows very close the book. It is funny enough to see the penis impersonated by other phallic object, i.e. gas pomp or bell towers. But a part from this few ideas, it was the only way to avoid to show a penis, the film failed to be "deep" like the book. Salce's goal in my opinion was to make a sex comedy a bit more intellectual than the usual Italian sex comedies of that period. The results is a film very faithful to the book in terms of screenplay but reduced to a mere kind of averaged sex comedy. Anyway it is better than all the other comparable Italian sex comedies, and since the book it is from I gave a six (out of ten).
