  3. Daniel S.'s rating of the film Boccaccio 70

    Fellini: five stars, masterpiece. Visconti: two stars, disappointing. De Sica: three stars, thanks to Sophia Loren. Monicelli: four stars, The Surprise of the film.

    For some reason I really want some milk now.

  5. bartkl's rating of the film Boccaccio 70

    How I loved the priest that was cruelly beat by his instinctual, sexual arousal towards Anita Eckberg. All of the four acts were weirdly comical and carried on a style of their own. Credits in particular to Visconti's set: marvelous. It was certainly a fun watch, although not something essential.

  6. What An Artist's rating of the film Boccaccio 70

    Monicelli's part was the most dramatic and straight-forward, and I cared enough about the characters. Fellini's was (as can be expected from him) the weirdest and wackiest, and it was great fun and very amusing. Visconti's was the best written and the most engaging. De Sica's was probably my least favourite, but Sophia Loren... oh my goodness, that woman was absolute perfection.

  8. Ethan's rating of the film Boccaccio 70

    A nice little series of vignettes from four of the greatest filmmakers to come out of Italy. Fellini brings us La Dolce Vita meets Attack of the 50 ft. Woman with his vignette.

  10. Max Seqgar's rating of the film Boccaccio 70

    Satirical fun through and through these 4 picaresque gems! Where did the brilliant Italian cinema of the 60/70's disappear to?

  12. Ark V's rating of the film Boccaccio 70

    some good ideas but mainly beautiful

  13. jamesey's rating of the film Boccaccio 70

    I enjoyed each act and loved being exposed to this film. If there are any couples looking for a mostly fun night of stories about love and romance, watch this. P.S. Anyone know why the film's title includes "70?" Is it for Boccaccio being converted to 70mm film?

  14. El Biffo's rating of the film Boccaccio 70

    5 stars for the very best segment, Fellini's THE TEMPTATION OF DR. ANTONIO (44:52), one of his very best! With a great song by Nino Rota. The other segments are very good, too. Bevete piu latte!

  15. Steve Thompson's rating of the film Boccaccio 70

    This 4 adaptations of Boccaccio, on the theme of sexual temptation, generally disappoint. Fellini's comic fable is bombastic and irritating while Monicelli is too seduced by cinematic style. Di Sica's vibrant parade of fairground life has a sparkling Sophia Loren but its sexual politics are dated. Visconti's sharp tale of aristocratic infidelity is the best but ultimately even it stagnates then edges into melodrama.

  16. ruthlornaadele's rating of the film Boccaccio 70

    Four films in one!- each with a distinctive flair and style yet filled with much physical humour which would be equally at home on a stage. Really enjoyed the colours, shapes and the the way the background in each shot has been thought out to amuse. An interesting commentary on the various attitudes on love,sex and marriage of the era. Why not 5/5? a little long overall- but then uncut films are by definition.

  17. dmol's rating of the film Boccaccio 70

    Vischonti's act was genius - political, funny, and then absolutely tragic. But then, in so many ways I found Monicelli's effortless character hilarious.

  18. Peter's rating of the film Boccaccio 70

    An unexpected rich collage. A forerunner to Sorrentino in examining Italian society through film. The women so beautiful and the men such donkeys.

  19. Claire's rating of the film Boccaccio 70

    Pointless if its unavailable to view in my country. Come on MUBI?

  21. msmichel's rating of the film Boccaccio 70

    Producer Carlo Ponti brought together four of the biggest directors in Italy for this collection with mostly positive results. Best of the bunch would be the Monicelli (cut for original US release!) followed closely by the De Sica/Sophia Loren comedy. Fellini's first foray into colour is included and is quite amusing though quickly runs out of steam. Least would by the Visconti peace despite a great turn from Romy.

  22. Sudarshan R.'s rating of the film Boccaccio 70

    Terrific episodes by Fellini, Visconti and Monicelli!

  23. riceball's rating of the film Boccaccio 70

    My favorite segment was "Renzo e Luciana" , but Romy Schneider definitely had the strongest performance.

  24. Mighty Quinn's rating of the film Boccaccio 70

    4 different takes on life & love in 60's Italy, with 4 great directors and 4 beautiful women. My pick for best segment is tied between Fellini's "Temptation of Dr. Antonio", a technicolour fantasy featuring a 50 ft Anita Ekberg, and Visconti's "The Job" - the most dramatic of the bunch, with Romy Schneider's great performance & the strongest ending overall. The other two pass for good lightweight entertainment, too.
