A lovely and rather moving film..
on 24 August 2011
Just saw this today. Lovely film from the director of Mid-August Lunch in which he again plays the leading role - a man turning 60 who feels his life slipping away from him - now he is a man that no-one under 30 really notices. Has the same pace, acute observation, the love of locale and the sense of Italian society as the earlier film (but many more pretty girls!) however maybe not quite the wit and humour. There was one titter and one genuine laugh from the audience so it is not a comedy in the traditional sense. And it is a sadder film too - I won't reveal any of the plot but I left feeling I needed cheering up. But then that might have something to do with my age!
A very entertaining 90 minutes, though, and if I hadn't liked his earlier film so much I would have given it 5 stars.
