Storyline

Nello Balocchi, a 35-year-old teacher of Greek and Latin, is invited to Bologna by his father, the owner of the Papal tailor's shop in Rome. His father hopes Nello will find a soul mate in Bolgna and thus produce an heir for the business. Nello stays in a guesthouse run by Arabella, a wise woman who already knows all about his situation. He shares a room with Domenico, a crafty barber from Naples. After several unsuccessful efforts, Nello meets Angela, an exuberant, beautiful young blind girl with whom he falls hopelessly in love. The girl's father and Nello's parents do not approve of the relationship, but the real problem is Angela's temperament. Written by Sujit R. Varma

Goofs

According to the English subtitles, Nello walks into Angela's room and says, "Good morning". They only talk for a few minutes. She then asks him if it is dark outside, to which he replies: "It's almost evening". However, this is not necessarily a mistake in the original Italian. "Buon giorno" is said until lunchtime, even as late as 2pm, and "buona sera" takes over from siesta time onwards. Saying "E' quasi sera" would not be an error if the scene began at lunchtime.

Uneven and oddly paced
4 April 2007 | by (California) – See all my reviews

While this movie has some good moments, I found both the plot and the pace of the movie uneven to the point where I was not engaged in the movie for most of the time. The lead actor is talented, so talented and so convincing as the sweet, lonely, and socially awkward 35 year-old he plays - at points in the movie - you feel bored of him and tired of his introversion and immersion in ancient poetry. The leading lady, while beautiful, does not deliver a convincing performance. That role required an actor with a broader range and she falls flat. There are, however, scenes that made me laugh aloud and all of them featured the legendary Giancarlo Giannini.
