Critic Reviews for Boccaccio '70

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (2)

De Sica and Monicelli went for broader, more traditional comedic effect -- less pretentious, but perhaps inevitably in this company, less memorable.

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.

I wish Loren and Fellini had actually made a movie together. They did not, but Fellini's film, The Temptation of Dr. Antonio, is classic Fellini. I didn't care much for the other two films.
