The man and the machine...
25 July 2001 | by See all my reviews

This is a not bad movie. Alberto Sordi speak about the affair of the man with the cold machine. This is affectionate to Enrico (Sordi), but when a girl come in the house of this, Caterina (the machine) have a transformation, and destroyed all the flat! And Enrico understand this: the machine have a earth! And Caterina become a "wife" for this. A not bad story, and Alberto Sordi is a good actor in this movie.

Vote for the actor/actress: 5/6 (It's the max for this film!) Vote for the director: 6/7 (in some scenes this film is a thriller!) Final vote: 6 (good!)
