Movie Info

In Rome, fascist supporter Emanuele (John Vernon) attends a parade commemorating Adolf Hitler's historic meeting with Italian leader Benito Mussolini, leaving his apolitical wife, Antonietta (Sophia Loren), to tend to household duties. Antonietta encounters a man, Gabriele (Marcello Mastroianni), who appears surprisingly nonplussed by the political event. Over the course of the day, the two forge a close friendship that will forever change their perceptions of life, love and politics.

Audience Reviews for Una Giornata Particolare (A Special Day)

  • Dec 09, 2013
    How does an audience feel watching two depressed characters fail to cheer each other up during a depressing time period in Italy? Well, I don't know about you, but I was both depressed and bored. I'm a big fan of both Loren and Mastroianni, but I love to see them do stuff, have fun, overcome obstacles... and none of that happened here. This is a slice of life story, and it seems more suited for the stage than for film. It isn't even interesting visually. In fact, the set, costumes, and general mis-en-scene, are also really boring. I'm not going to say that it's a terrible film, though. In the character's interactions and dialogue, there was a bit of tension and a promise of furthering the story. Unfortunate that nothing comes of it, but I liked thinking that something would happen. Plus, it's hard to make this setting fun. So, I'm going to say this movie is just so-so.
