  1. Pymo's rating of the film Dear Michael

  2. Duncan Gray's rating of the film Dear Michael

    Opening in an austere, bourgeois world with mournful music and Gordon Willis lighting, you might think Monicelli pulled a fast one and made a straight drama. But then the younger generation invades, and comedy flowers with a melancholy undertow. This is a series of lives all united by an absence. Best: it rekindles Monicelli's love of people who'll never have their lives together. Nice digs at the intelligentsia too.

  3. Karl J. Kipling's rating of the film Dear Michael

    Mario Monicelli directed. Nino Rota did the score. Tonino Guerra cowrote the script based on a Natalia Ginzburg novel. And it's quite bad. Also contains my pick for the most irritating character in the history of narrative film.
