Critic Reviews for Boccaccio '70
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.
...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.
Audience Reviews for Boccaccio '70
Boccaccio 70 is light Italian comedy / drama. The short films are entertaining and the women are good-looking. While these films are not among the greatest of the era, if you enjoyed La Dolce Vita, for example, for the Italian charm and spirit, then you will likely enjoy the Boccaccio films as well. They are not classics but they are good to watch.
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.
These four segments by four auteurs are pure comic delight!
