Movie Info

Busy actor Enrico Maria Salerno made his directorial debut with this predictable tearjerker using a cast better known to fans of Italian horror than to its target audience. Salerno's script, co-written with Giuseppe Berto, features genre veterans Tony Musante and Florinda Bolkan as an estranged couple reunited for a day. They wander around Venice reminiscing about the ups and downs of their marriage, wondering what drove them apart. As might be expected, their memories bring them back together, but the husband's terminal illness turns the sweet reunion into a mawkish Love Story clone. Stelvio Cipriani's overwrought score only compounds the film's soap-opera feel, but at least there are some lovely shots of Venice by cinematographer Marcello Gatto.


Critic Reviews for The Anonymous Venetian

All Critics (2) | Top Critics (1)

The story is one of those indigestible tragedies in which the people on the screen seem to be crying more than we feel they have a reason to.
