| Near Masterpiece of the avant-garde director Ettore Scola!!!
Ettore Scola is an avant-garde director, Il Viaggio di Capitain Fracassa is really fabulous, set on seventeenth century an itinerant theatrical troupe are heading to Paris, during a storm they reach a crumble castle of the blighted Baron of Sigognac (Vincent Perez) to get a shelter, the faithful servant Pietro sees the great opportunity to send his young poor Baron to Paris hoping a meeting with the King Louis XIII which the Sigognac's father had saved Louis XIII's father at Paris's siege in the past and may returning all his wealth, the lineup of Troupe are leaded by Tyrant (Tony Ulci), the unloved and beauty Serafina (Ornella Muti), the dreamer sweet Isabella ( Emmanuelle Béart) and the volatile Zerbine (Tosca D'Aquino), the veteran actor Matamore (Pierrer), the versatile Pulcinella (Massino Troisi) the vain old lady Leonarde (Masiero) and the leading character Leandre (Wertmuller) , Pietro bribes Pulcinella to protect his Baron along the journey, they running across many places which they acting their theatre play, always paid by food, in the travel the young Baron knows the love, however all them have to share sorrows, starvation and some fun occasionally, further all this told in sparse flashbacks by Pulcinella to an eager health civil servant, all in small details, Ettore masterfully exposes the hardness period to the scenic arts, their aches and pains, a journey to celebrate the art, almost perfect!!!!
