Goofs

When Marta is babysitting, the audio of the little baby is clearly fake. The child himself is not crying at all but is seen often smiling or simply looking at the camera. The crying voice is provided by a crying doll that was widespread in those years in Italy. See more »

Feelings and hunger
9 October 2020 | by seventhriotontheshipSee all my reviews

The romantic comedy ''Un povero ricco'' is unique in its kind because it mockingly shows a rich man voluntarily giving up his wealth. It doesn't work that way. And while the rich also feel hungry, it's not because of the lack of funds for food. To all the class proceedings, in this picture is also added a cool love line, which takes the film to another level within the already quite loaded script. The unsurpassed duet of beautiful Ornella Muti and funny Renato Pozzetto did a great job to make the feeling after watching it easy, but at the same time there was something to think about.

I can only say that such films are worth watching. Watch and understand, that you need to love. Love movies. Love like in the movies. Although it has nothing to do with hunger... Or has it!?
