average adaptation of a great book!
20 April 2006 | by elsinefiloSee all my reviews

Balzac,as a writer who was able to write more than 90 novels in 20 years, is one of those great realist writers whom you could read with enthusiasm. In Eugenia Grandet, there is a stingy father whose birthday present to his daughter is a different gold coin every year . He takes account of every penny and he is suffocating the people around him with his greedy and chintzy nature.One day when the family(the father,daughter,the mother etc..) and the important people in town are having some sort of poker party Eugenia's cousin comes to his uncle's home. His father(Eugenia's uncle) sends his son to his brother with a hope of borrowing a huge amount of money but the stingy man doesn't help his brother. While Eugenia falls in love with her cousin the man has to leave for India to make money.Like in all of the novels of Balzac the characters and the plot is fully realized in this novel. The movie portrays the setting and the sets of events in the novel by keeping loyal to the original realist version.Gualtiero Tumiati's performance as the stingy father is really amazing while the famous star Alida Valli is not that amazing.Mario Soldati as both a writer and director himself has got the world of Blazac I guess. I have not seen the other adaptations of the same book yet but I did not find this one bad though I feel it could be better.
