Critic Reviews for Boccaccio '70
...wonderful little time capsules of Italy in the early '60s [which] offer a look at different aspects of love and lust,
Like most anthology films, it has its ups and downs, though the ups generally outweigh the downs.
De Sica and Monicelli went for broader, more traditional comedic effect -- less pretentious, but perhaps inevitably in this company, less memorable.
All inferences to the famous poet aside, Boccaccio '70 is a celebration of the opposite sex, a foursome of testaments to the undying connection between women and life.
An Italian portmanteau movie that sees three tales about the attraction and power of women.
It has glamour, sophistication, color, wit and sensuality (not necessarily in that order), all of which blend very well in the enveloping air of a facility that is to be devoted to the showing of sophisticated films.
