Audience Reviews for Light in the Piazza
Nice drama in a beautiful setting. Except for the ludicrous casting of George Hamilton as an Italian the film benefits from an excellent cast. Olivia is strong as the worried mother, Rossano dashing and Yvette breathtakingly beautiful like a china doll come to life.
Clara(Yvette Mimieux) is mildly Mentally Challenged, exceptionally Beautiful,& becoming Highly Sexually Aware as she becomes a handful on a European Vacay with her Wealthy Mother(Olivia de Havilland).Clara is extremely popular with the European Men, & she finds the attention New & Exciting, but ohhhhh, what a challenge that turns out to be for her Prissy Momma.A Very Stunning Film
An absorbing drama about a mother played by a very regal Olivia de Havilland, who has taken her gorgeous but mentally disabled daughter Clara, played by a stunning and delightfully charming Yvette Mimieux to Italy to escape her daughters ripening adult needs. In Florence they meet Fabrizio Naccarelli, a handsome young man (George Hamilton - who is a stunner too), and a romance develops between the two young people. Rossano Brazzi shows up as the charming and romantic Signor Naccarelli, Fabrizio's father who helps nudge Mrs. Johnson towards acceptance of the budding romance. Is Clara capable of an adult relationship? Can Mrs. Johnson relinquish control? Will love conquer all? Felt fresh despite it's age and the massive shift in sexual morality and the treatment of the disabled since the early 60's when this was made.
