A young American woman (Sydne Rome) traveling through Italy finds herself in a strange Mediterranean villa where nothing seems right. Her visit becomes an absurd, decadent, oversexed version of Alice in Wonderland.
This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what’s now showing
Some sympathetic moments (in all its weirdness) can't save this messy alice in wonderland all'italiana, or a la polanski more exactly.
I know the charm is supposed to be on its absurdist situations, but I just didn't find it funny, rather incredibly boring and uninsteresting.
Sort of enjoyable, but more than a bit creepy. The opulence of Carlo Ponti's Italian villa & art collection is what lingers most in the mind afterward. Swatting the fly on the Francis Bacon painting is a good joke though!
Seriously, what? Why was this made? What is the purpose of anything I just saw? Is it supposed to be a satirized American perception of Mediterranean suaveness? Or just an improvisation exercise on grounds of Felliniesque theatricality? Well, wherever it might be heading, apart from a handful of intriguing moments it is a mess of a movie severely lacking in inspiration, and impossible to swallow as a whole.
I love this crazy and strange movie. It's one of my favourites of all time! I probably already watched it for about 10 times. A strange thing is that I don't like the end of this film. Not because it's bad, but just because it's the end.
A comedy devoid of laughs isn’t good news, but Che? isn’t all uninteresting. There are some remarkable scenes, eg. Mastroianni spanked while dressed in a tiger skin. The story - if not the whole movie - has a similar function as stories do in porn movies: it’s an excuse for fucking around. Sydney Rome’s gorgeous and half-naked in almost every frame, so at least those aroused by female beauty will enjoy the two hours.
Una película con reflexión tardía. Inicia con una violación frustrada. La víctima escapa y termina encerrada en una mansión en donde también será presa actos sexuales extremos, solo que esta vez ella cederá. "Che?" recuerda a "Cul de sac" por lo absurdo, lo excéntrico, el masoquismo de sus personajes, es violenta, tiene de locura y la perversión sexual está en albedrío. Al final el refugio no fue tan seguro.
