Death of a chamber maid
21 June 2015 | by dbdumonteilSee all my reviews

It could be another husbands/wives/lovers routine comedy ;it's the first impression ,but as anyone knows,never trust your first one:the further acquaintance says this: another important Italian satire,in which comedy walks hand in hand with tragedy,another portrait of Roma bourgeoisie vitriolic style;and the most cynical character is not even a bourgeois:he is a handsome gigolo who blackmails his lovers "after he took everything he could steal";his philosophy he explains to his friend in the car takes boorishness to new limits.His depiction of the posh party (and the guests!) is arguably the peak of the movie.

In this world,which recalls sometimes recalls Luis Bunuel (but humor is almost absent) and Claude Chabrol ,how can an innocent girl survive?Anna Maria Ferrero as Cesarina is no match for those wealthy VIP,stinking money.Those cowards do not want to compromise themselves ,their selfishness (and their fear of scandal)knows no bound. The ending may seem debatable ,but Liliana realizes that one brave individual struggling the authorities (who more or less side with the rich)can't hope to win.In later works such as "Guardie E Ladri",Mario Monicelli dismisses policemen and thieves without pronouncing in favor of either.

NB:although at the top of the bill,Gina Lollobrigida actually supports ;Marina Vlady (spelled Wladi) ,15 (!) at the time,portrays the industrial's lover.
