Like many Italian films of this era, they're more a 'slice of life' than a story per se, but this was an agreeable watch all the same. The few special effects sequences were really gripping (and probably extremely dangerous for the actors!) Violent Summer is alright, but it won't stick in the memory very long. 7.25/10
I have not heard of this film until it was strongly recommended to me and I've only vaguely heard of the director. It's about a love affair between a draft-dodging son of a fascist and an older, recent widow of a respected navy officer. It at times feels like a Douglas Sirk film transplanted into an Italian World War II drama and that's a compliment. It features excellent performances between the two leads and contains some brilliantly directed scenes which made me wonder why director Valerio Zurlini isn't quite as well-known as other Italian directors Fellini, de Sica, Rossellini, etc.
peccato, un film esteticamente importante, con un bianco e nero bellissimo e una fotografia da grande film italiano del tempo che fu: i dialoghi rasentano l'imbarazzante cosÃ¬ come una certa tendenza a ricercare un pathos dall'esito ridicolo. Mediocre.
Visivamente bellissimo ma con qualche difetto di sceneggiatura e dialoghi. Racconta l'estate del '43 nell'ambiente altoborghese a Riccione.
Bittersweet! No one does it like Zurlini.
Joli film Italien avec ses klishÃ© et son Ã©lÃ©gance qui rendent nostalgique d'une Ã©poque que j'ai pas connu.
