DIVORCE ITALIAN STYLE
4 out of 5. Pietro Germi's DIVORCE-ITALIAN STYLE is a lot of fun! Marcello Mastroianni clearly enjoyed the role of the Sicilian Baron smitten with his cousin but to get rid of his overly loving wife made for an excellent obstacle. You find yourself rooting for the rapscallion. Germi's Seduced and Abandoned was a much harsher approach to comedy and I'm glad to see this has the smoothness of a great tiramisu. If you like screwball comedies played sincerely with real style and pouring over with Italian flavor then you'll dig the hell outta this.
