  • Daniel S.'s rating of the film The Bachelor

    The Seducer, the Women and La Mama. Third movie of Antonio - 'I Knew Her Well' -Pietrangeli. It's a very good comedy about Alberto Sordi, a seducer all'Italiana who doesn't want to get married until the day he finds himself alone in his room with a cold and nobody to take care of him. Slightly misogynistic (Don't choose a girl before seeing her mom..), the film is very, very funny. Recommended!
