Usual Verdone
29 March 2004 | by (Firenze, Italy) – See all my reviews

This movie is the sort of strange mixture between comedy and drama (more comedy this time) that is usual of the contemporary Italian cinema, made by one of his best actor/director, Carlo Verdone. It has been a long time since his first efforts, more comical, almost pharcycal. Now, Verdone is a mature author, that choose to examine the midlife crisis of a couple, their separation (not really thraumatic), their new life (or such). Verdone is fun to watch and hear (in the Italian language, of course) even if the movie is not full of gags (less than the usual in movies of such a director). The story is not too dense, probably a little superficial, but could be true, a mirror for some real couple. All in all, not shining, but not bad.
