An odd threesome on the road
1 October 2006 | by (Roma, Italy) – See all my reviews

"Baciami Piccina" is a very nice little dramedy set in 1943. Based on an idea by the late director Sergio Citti, the film is inspired to Italian classics like "I due marescialli" and "la Grande Guerra". Like these films "Baciami piccina" shows the tragicomic events of some little people (the carabiniere Umberto, his fianceè Luisa and the flamboyant con man Raoul, traveling in one way or another from Terni to Venezia) while on the background history (in this case Italy's armistice with Allies) happens. The first half of the film is very funny; then it takes a more serious and tragic turn. Everyone is perfectly cast an give a nice performance, especially Salemme and Marcorè; the script by veteran screenwriter Furio Scarpelli is pretty good and everything works nicely. One minor flaw: the song "L'eco der core" sung in the film by Tosca is a Roman song, in Roman dialect, very unlikely to be sung in a Venetian inn. Beautiful song, though. My vote is 7.5/ 10 - Give this little film a chance, you won't regret!
