Can be much, much better!
26 February 2014 | by Lemmy KillmisterSee all my reviews

Marco Ferreri's "Diary of..." probably isn't one of his best work. Made on a low budget, movie overflows with a feeling of stylistic freedom. The story is told in short flashes, which the hero reads from his diary. Benito lives in cheap rented rooms and makes a humiliating living peddling toilet-bowl detergent. Despite having a beautiful, sexually insatiable girlfriend Luigia (Sabrina Ferilli) who's crazy about him, Benito can't resist constant, casual affairs with women of all descriptions and ages. Pic is a visual pleasure (thanks to irresistible Sabrina Ferilli) and music background is nice but scenario is very weak. Definitely, it's a movie for one boring afternoon... 4/10
