  • dionysus67's rating of the film Silver Spoon Set

    Photographed in glorious b/w by the great Di Venanzo, this may be Maselli's masterpiece, typical of the era's fascination with bourgeois decadence. Utilitarianism, secrecy, covert resentment for one's debt to upper class parents disable gardually a ravishing Cardinale (Fedora), she coming from the working class. Like the empty (foreclosed) flat, the bourgeoisie absorbs its own will for (futile) self-transcendence.
