a young seducer (Mario Angelotti) becomes, almost unwillingly, a bigamist
30 August 2010 | by Dr BisSee all my reviews

"It's Spring" (litteral translation of the original Italian title) is an excellent bitter sweet comedy, a specific genre in Italy. It tells the story of how a young seducer (Mario Angelotti) becomes, almost unwillingly, a bigamist. Husband of the tough Sicilian Maria Antonia (Elena Varzi) in Catena, in the south, and husband of the joyful Luccia in Milan, northern Italy. It demonstrates two sides of Italy which are very true even to this day: the charming happiness of some, and the dark and introverted silence of others. Apparently this was not released in France until 2010, on French TV, on the "Cinema Club" weekly program on FR 3 TV. A must see for fan of the Italian cinema.
