| Alberto Sordi is simply the best!
Il "Marchese del Grillo" is an incredibly enjoying movie,Alberto Sordi is absolutely a "maestro" of acting.He portrays his character in a really smashing way.You can realize better and agree with what I'm saying,if you can understand the Roman dialect,as I do.Alberto is great not only because he depicts this really existed character in a very convincing way ,but he also adds fun to the movie through the creation of Gasperino,the drunken coal seller. I think that all those American actors of Italian origins should understand and recognize that he's really their own "maestro" too. In a few words Alberto represents for the world of the cinema what Dante Alighieri still represents for the world literature Apart from our big Alberto,I must also praise the performance of the rest of the cast and the wise direction of Mario Monicelli.According to me he's the only director in the world who has always succeeded in depicting in a very faithful and convincing manner different historical periods of my country, that's Italy.
