Storyline

Set in modern day Milan, this is a Chaplinesque odyssey through the world of work - every type of work, but primarily unskilled manual labor, seen through the eyes of a kind, middle-aged man who takes on every conceivable temporary job in order to be useful and have self respect. Beautifully wrought by master Italian director Gianni Amelio. This really is a portrait of the highs and lows of modern life. At its heart is a sympathetic man (superbly embodied by leading actor Antonio Albanese) who, despite loneliness and personal family problems, especially around his gifted but troubled musician son, remains defiantly optimistic even when terrible things happen to him and the people he meets. With echoes of films like Being Thereand even Zelig, L'Intrepido is gently satirical, acutely observed and, whilst still having the atmosphere of a fable, is replete with a wonderfully appropriate music score.

Maligned Italian curiosity.
20 September 2014 | by See all my reviews

Gianni Amelio has always been one of the most interesting Italian film-makers. His silent movie compilation is the best thing about the wasted opportunity represented by the Turin film museum.

The current production is not as imposing as OPEN DOORS or L'America. I can't honestly say I understand it. However it held my attention and I became engaged with Antonio Albanese it's leading man, who is better know in Italy. He's the traffic cop in FROM ROME WITH LOVE. The character's variety of fill-in jobs give us an intriguing cross section of Italian life and that's clearly the reason they've been shown. The personal story is another matter and the puzzling ending is unsatisfying. People who write about the film don't seem to be able to handle that.

I'd watch it again if I got the chance and I thought it would give me a better handle on what Amelio wants us to take away from the film.

Luca Bigazzi's 'scope images are as always impeccable and the score is best Euro film music.
