  1. Richard Tines's rating of the film L'amore in città

    Moves between reproductive and narrative documentary in it's montage/omnibus style...most of the segments deal with abject people (prostitutes, suicide attempt survivors, a too-shy young woman, a poor unwed mother) and ends with a 15 min homage to the male gaze...each section bears it's maker's imprimatur, but the two best here are Risi's dancehall ode, and Fellini's sad/charming exploration of marriage agencies...

  2. Monkey Flix's rating of the film L'amore in città

    Mildly interesting, but only for a glimpse into what life was like in 1953 Italy. Most of the stories aren't particularly interesting or compelling.

  3. SpacePirate's rating of the film L'amore in città

    The opening bits talking with prostitutes and suicide attempters was probably the only truly interesting parts. Yes, it was made by giants of Italian cinema, but stick to their actual classics. Not much to recommend, though an interesting curio and worth checking out at least once for hardcore Italian cinema fans. Problem is, nothing really sticks with you. Have mostly forgotten the film already a day later. 2 stars

  4. Slappy McGee's rating of the film L'amore in città

    An anthology of films that might just be for purists only. I found myself very distanced from the material just because it seems so dated and stylistically off-putting. I really couldn't get into it myself. Not bad filmmaking, just not appealing to me. I can definitely see where other tastes would really enjoy this group of early Italian cinema.

  5. El Biffo's rating of the film L'amore in città

    The segment by Francesco Moselli.

  6. Loz Loory's rating of the film L'amore in città

    Wonderful segments focusing on the reality of life for working class and poorer people. Excellent, empathetic depictions of characters trapped by society's rules. The last segment could be used to diagnose PTSD in women who have visited Italy. Very difficult to watch and remember how all Italian men are allowed to "police" any woman on the street, not just with their eyes, but with their bodies. Terrifying. Not love.

  10. Victoria L.'s rating of the film L'amore in città

    Great "choreography" of characters, emotions and reactions! An anthology is a thing rather hard to come by and trully enjoy without pause but L'amore in citta deals with a theme so common and yet so infinite, that the viewer understands and feel compassion for the characters although the whole documentary pretence is around to release any overbearing drama.
