| Worth a watch
Very faithful towards the well-known play of Vitaliano Brancati, a well-built melodrama which is probably Grimaldi's best movie. An excellent performance by Turi Ferro (a monument of Italian theatre) and Martine Brochard (really a surprise here), well-supported by Quattrini, Caprioli, the beautiful Agostina Belli and Pino Caruso. A movie which grows minute after minute and keeps growing after the end. Worth a watch!
