I loved it!
Well I think that you should watch this wonderful Italian film. It is taken from the comedy “Filumena Marturano” by Eduardo De Filippo. Marcello Mastroianni is superb and Sophia Loren is excellent. It’s a pity she didn’t won the second Oscar as best actress of this film.
The title-song “‘O cielo ce manna ‘sti ‘ccose” by Fred Bongusto is absolutely wonderful.
Marriage Italian Style
The film employs a tremendously perky rhythm and register to showcase the traits of the earthly Italy at its post-war development, even though essentially the overwrought kernel of a prostitute’s tribulations could hardly appropriate as a comedy material.
Vittorio De Sica’s camera enigmatically haunts and pivots around two leads’ present and past, the intangible love/hate chaos is disarmingly intriguing and subconsciously imbues the audience with a fervent compassion towards Sophia Loren’s unswerving while passionate Filumena. The leading performance is worth of much accolade, especially for Sophia Loren, whose full-brown force of personality spanning over 20 years in the film and indisputably devotes a magnificent performance with all her zest and vigor. Marcello Mastroianni, is great as well, to hone up his versatility and render the womanizer an ambiguous moral criterion which is a more delicate task.
I cannot help being fascinated by the exquisite script as well, credited by five names, no wonder all the twists and turns are so fruitful in a way that both surprising and amusing. Nominated for 2 Oscars (BEST FOREIGN FILM and a second BEST ACTRESS nomination for Loren) and is a milestone which not only represents Loren’s heyday but also is a comforting fruition of Loren-Conti correlation. Maybe it is not director De Sica’s best canon due to its slight superficiality of machismo, which I sense may not be the director’s fault as it is a general bias lies in all over the globe. Anyway, the film itself surely is a fine piece captures a genuine Italian aura (the Naples’ style) and definitely worth your pocket.
