Make way for tomorrow.....
7 October 2007 | by See all my reviews

Comencini was some kind of Italian equivalent of American Frank Borzague .Like him,he displayed a humanism which was (and still is) rare .He had often tackled the children's condition with admirable works such as "incompreso" "Pinocchio" or "Cuore" .Here he broached the old people's plight.The viewer will necessarily think of Leo McCarey's extremely moving "make way for tomorrow" the subject of which was similar: what shall we do with our folks when we, young ones,want to have fun and make the best of our life ? However,times are changing ; unlike the old 1938 couple ,the 1989 characters don't agree to be victims: Comencini 's work is a comedy,albeit a bitter one,whereas Leo McCarey's film did not leave any hope to the audience...

Michel Serrault and Virna Lisa are wonderful.
