A good movie!
5 January 2020 | by RodrigAndrisanSee all my reviews

Ugo Tognazzi, along with many American actresses. It's not a masterpiece, and it's not a comedy, it's a drama. A drama played very naturally by all the actors, either Italian or American. Many scenes seem to be detached from a documentary. Tognazzi is the same as in many other films, natural and efficient. A young and beautiful Marina Vlady laughs all her screen time, even when she should be sober.
