Loved this. Alberto Sordi has such great comedic timing and presence. A cracking start to the Commedia All’italiana box set from Radiance Films
Eggers did not have final cut and you can FEEL that throughout the film. Complete tonal shifts and weird fade to blacks where there was naturally meant to be more material. We'll probably never see the cut that prompted 'extensive reshooting'. The movie business is a double-edged viking sword. This film would never exist without big money, but it sure is hindered by said big money.
Now, if you need me, I'll be replaying Skyrim all weekend.
