| Wonderful soundtrack but the movie is not up to scratch.
The precedent user was right:the score by Ennio Morricone -who remains one of the greatest of all- is tuneful ,splendid,perfect.It's when you deal with the movie that things go wrong..

First of all,Romy Schneider -an actress I like very much though- is miscast as an Italian woman.In her diary published in the late eighties the actress wrote:"the filming had only begun when I had to strip naked for a love scene (...)I was interested in playing a very different character(...)Bevilacqua,the scriptwriter had not the slightest idea of what a movie was .We were completely lost,all of us ,even Ugo Tognazzi." The main problem,IMHO,is that the film would like to be realistic -a depiction of the factories strikes in Italy- and it has also intellectual pretensions.Sometimes it makes me think of Pasolini's "teorema"(1968),Romy Schneider's "Califfa" replacing the Terence Stamp's angel.The scenes between Tognazzi and Schneider seem unreal.

It is a dated movie ,it captures the end of the sixties zeitgeist,all content and no form. But once again,the score is worth the price of admission.
