A genius as debutante
12 October 2002 | by wobelixSee all my reviews

Not yet as powerful as he will be in films like 'Una Giornata Particolare' or 'Les Nuits De Varennes' (the ultimate roadmovie...), but Scola shows already all the promise here in these sketches. Funny, sometimes tragically funny, but every time very telling and atmospheric. And of course, watching a young and chameleon-like Vittorio Gassman in 9 different roles, is pure joy.
