More Italian alientation.
3 March 2002 | by MozjoukineSee all my reviews

Bolognini was into these lost nights movies - "Notte Brava" is another one - but this could have been made by any of the emerging Italian directors. Good looking young performers contribute the main interest. Attempts at atmospheric staging don't really work, as where Blain meets Lualdi under the (bad continuity) rain where she is protected by her white umbrella.

Brass dominant scoring is interesting and the images are good. The commentary on Italian marriage is curious but we've seen it too often in other Italian movies.
