Starring Roberto Benigni, Nicoletta Braschi, Michel Blanc, Dominique Lavanant
(7-Very Good Film)
Clever. Silly. Appealing.
Inspired comedy playing off of Hitchcock’s classic, Frenzy, Loris (Benigni), through a series of misunderstandings, becomes the lead suspect in a string of sexual murders. As the lead cop, Nicoletta Braschi (Benigni’s real-life wife), investigates, she finds herself falling in love with the man. Showcases Benigni’s skill at physical humor and clever use of comic foreshadowing. Much fun.
