Pirandello stories.
This four-episode film, each part by a different Italian director, is based on stories in Luigi Pirandello's "Novelle per un anno" much as the 1985 Taviani Brothers' film KAOS would be. The first episode, "La giara" (The Jar) is the only story that appears in both films. It is about a wealthy Sicilian landowner's large terra-cotta olive vat that is broken and must be repaired by a jar-repairer who becomes trapped inside it. "Il ventaglio" (The Fan) is about a young mother who begs money in order to be able to buy herself a fan. The third episode is "La patente" (The License, or as it was called in the U.S.A. "The Jinx"). It is an amusing little anecdote about a man who wants to get certified as a jinx so that he can make money from his special abilities of warding off the evil eye.The character is played by the marvelous Italian comic Toto'. The last episode is is "Marsina stretta" (Tight Vest) with a corpulent Aldo Fabrizi needing a tuxedo to wear to a wedding and unable to fully fit into a borrowed one. The episodes were directed respectively by Giorgio Pastina, Mario Soldati, Luigi Zampa, and Aldo Fabrizi.
