Trivia

Italo Svevo's original novel is usually known in English as "As A Man Grows Older". Ironically, many critics felt that that Anthony Franciosa, then in his mid-thirties, was rather too young for the leading role. See more »

An Excellent Romantic-Drama
8 November 2015 | by Uriah43See all my reviews

"Emilio Brentani" (Anthony Franciosa) is a man in his 40's who lives with his sister "Amalia Brentani" (Betsy Blair). One day he meets a beautiful, young woman named "Angiolina Zarri" (Claudia Cardinale) and wants to possess her in the worst possible way and even tells her this. However, he makes it clear to her that he has no intention of marrying her. Not long afterward he learns of her checkered past and it makes him insanely jealous. Yet rather than dealing with this jealousy he insists upon having her even though he fully realizes that she desperately needs money and that whatever relationship they have cannot last. Meanwhile, his sister becomes enamored of Emilio's best friend, "Stefano Balli" (Philippe Leroy) who has a notorious reputation as a playboy which Emilio realizes can only cause Amilia a lot of pain and heartbreak for her in the future. Now rather than reveal any more of this movie I will only say that this turned out to be an excellent romantic-drama made even more impressive by the fine performance of Anthony Franciosa along with the presence of Claudia Cardinale who was simply exquisite. In any case, I believe that those who enjoy films of this nature will definitely want to check this one out and I have rated it accordingly.
