outstanding overlooked Wilder flick
This charming and whimsical flick has been a favorite of mine for years, and I am puzzled as to why it so neglected. There are five main reasons the film works so well, not necessarily in order of importance: 1) the cinematography of the isle of Ischia 2) Billy Wilder’s direction 3) Jack Lemmon 4) Wilder’s and Diamond’s script 5) Clive Revill as the hotel manager. Little can be added to the generally favorable comments found here. My favorite scene: Wendell Armbruster’s introduction to the Trotta family (“That’s a lotta Trottas!”). Well worth a see!
Any film by Billy Wilder can be called a masterpiece, but this is probably the one that joins in perfect proportions all the features in Mr. Wilder works: humor (sometimes black), tenderness, splendid actors and actresses, a fast rhythm and lots of irony. In addition, on “Avanti” there are gorgeous Italian locations and wonderful musics. Who could ask for more?
