Should be turned into a Broadway musical
When this comedy came out in the 70’s, it was aptly described as “Chaplinesque”. The hero, a coarse Italian immigrant in Switzerland, is as much an Everyman as Chaplin’s Tramp. The movie was a hit in the US, winning the NY Critics’ Award for Best Foreign Film. Nino Manfredi is funny and touching as the earthy immigrant, the “bread” in the land of refinement (“chocolate”). Anna Karina is stunning as the Greek stowaway who shares some of the same predicament as Manfredi. The “chicken coop” sequence is particularly hilarious. I think this is one movie that deserves to be transformed into a Broadway musical. How about it, Mr. Sondheim?
