Great Albertone!!!
25 July 2001 | by Il_KoreanoSee all my reviews

Alberto Sordi as a great drama/comedy actor in this movie! It's the story about a taxi driver of Rome (Italy), and about the adventure of this in the street of the city. But in this life exist the family (the wife, the son and the father) and his problem. For Piero (Sordi) the work is a perfect place for discovery the life, for understand the world. Great is Federico Fellini with this apparition!

Thanks Alberto for this movie

VOTE FOR ACTOR/ACTRESS: 6/7 (All the actor as great!) VOTE FOR DIRECTOR: 6/7 (Not particular) VOTE FOR WRITER: 7 (the best thing of this movie!) FINAL VOTE: 7 (Thanks Alberto!)
