This one has been taken down already. From a Roman Balcony is still up, though.
No longer! Ya snooze, ya lose. Maybe next time, dipshits!

Here's one that titoli and I basically agree on, a film we have both enjoyed: http://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=la+visita+youtube&view=detail&mid=BA98E1B5B2BFB5F91867BA98E1B5B2BFB5F91867&FORM=VIRE

Don't you think Perrier's character is basically the same, grown older, as the one he played for Fellini? Actually that the movie was probably inspired by that episode?

Are you talking about his part in Nights of Cabiria? Very plausibly. By saying he's grown older, you mean "toothless" (i.e. less dangerous)? He's rather frightening in Cabiria; here, he is venal but amusing.

I had forgotten you had reviewed it. Maybe because you got it all wrong:


Mafioso (1962). Alberto Lattuada. An efficient Milanese manager returns to Sicily with his family and is recruited by the local mafia don to take care of some family business. At turns funny and chilling, not only is it amazing this was made 10 years before The Godfather, its amazing it came 23 years before Prizzi's Honor. The central character, however, has such little backbone that he just goes with the flow rather than taking any initiative. This causes an eventual slackening of the plot (in fact, the film is missing a third act). Beautifully shot in black and white. 3.5/5

He has "little backbone"? "just goes with the flow"? What else could he do? I pointed out that the main flaw is that he, rather incredibly but for plot's reasons, doesn't get hip to what it's happening sooner. But he can't do a thing about it anyway.

Me In Trumpland? Never. >:D

P.S. Don't miss "The Thursday", Risi himself thought it was his best movie. A pity they didn't include "Weekend, Italian Style", his second best. Not to be missed: Il gaucho, I mostri, In nome del popolo italiano, Una vita difficile, La marcia su Roma  and, of course, Il vedovo, one of Sordi's - and Valeri's -  most quoted performances.   The Easy Life I assume everybody has watched it.
