It is sealed and stifling, gray and extremely powerful-about as attractive as somebody coughing wretchedly beside you on a subway. And as insistent.
Comedy at its darkest in this transfixing black and white beauty from the golden days of Italian cinema.
Still a shocking, forceful film, and it seems every bit as alive today as it must have in 1965.
It somehow manages not to be a shocker, a clinical study or like an American TV soap opera despite its story line dipping into all those areas.
Shot impeccably by Alberto Marrama and dipped in hushed Ennio Morricone lullabies, the film's visual intensity presents the iconography of a world in transition.
Very interesting film. Quirky, yet chilling and at times very intense.
At first you feel that Alessandro is only trying to help his older brother (the most "stable" fammily member) out and free him from his burdensome family obligations, but as the film progresses it becomes less clear as to what his motive is. Lou Castel does a wondeful job at keeping you guessing.
Ultimately a very sad (but interesting) look at what has to be one of the MOST dysfunctional familes ever put to film.
This film is a selection from the Criterion Collection, Spine No #333. Like all movies in the Criterion Collection it is far from what is seen on the big screen in America. If you enjoy films that are somewhat different then I recommend that you venture in to this collection of over 400 plus films from some of the greatest directors in the world. This is about a young man who has seizures and has a sister, a mother who is blind, and a brother who is also handicapped, He wants to take the burden off his normal brother so he starts eliminating family members one by one. A 3 1/2 star performance.
What an awesome and twisted debut film!!! Dark, subversive, and a scathing indictment of bourgeois family values. Family dynamics don't become more dysfunctional than this. Lou Castel's performance as the anti-hero is unforgettable. The camera-work in this film dramaticlly diverges from neo-realism, forging a new language in Itailian cinema.
this is brilliant. a milestone of sixties film and still amazingly fresh. lou castel's performance as a disturbed man hatching a matter-of-fact plan to get rid of his troublesome family is incredibly chilling, at times bordering on the blackest of comedies. with a lovely eerie score by morricone. i will never hear la traviata again without thinking of this film
