Italian black comedy "a la Risi"
18 May 2005 | by almayer-2See all my reviews

A beautiful movie with some of the best Italian actors of the 90s. The old owner of a restaurant decides to sell it: the staff will have to prove to the new owners that the place should not be closed and transformed into a furniture's showroom, otherwise they'll face being fired. Sht entirely in a restaurant on the Tirrenian coast (close to Rome), great soundtrack (from the starting track "Perhaps, Perhaps, Perhaps" to the final "Born to Loose" by Ray Charles). All actors are perfect for their part: Catania, Abatantuono,Villaggio, Ciccio Ingrassia, Messeri... Great cast, nicely shot, great dialog. Wonderful black comedy in the trace of Mr. Dino Risi. Unfortunately unavailable on DVD, but an Italian VHS exists, published by Cecchi Gori group.
