Una tragicomedia sobre la búsqueda absurda y deseperada de un hombre por mantener en pie el honor de su familia tras la pérdida de la virginidad de su hija. El guión se siente un poco caótico y desajustado tras el atentado fallido a Peppino, pero en general resulta divertida. La cámara y el montaje son asombrosamente dinámicos
I loved it, of course. a typically Italian film, looking in upon itself and the era in a humorous way. I really do love Pietro Germi's work, though, from what I've see prior to this and knew I would enjoy it. I highly recommend it for the great look and great drama of this easy-to-watch film.
a very dark, somewhat comedic and very critical view of sicilian life. while i thought divorce italian style gave the same insight into this island's life (in more darkly comedic way), this film shows how far people will go to save face no matter the moral or ethical standards. i would have enjoyed it more if it wasn't so infuriating but i suppose that's what makes good cinema.
