WHAT SCOUNDRELS MEN ARE!
Monday, October 5
Gli uomini, che mascalzoni… (1932, Mario Camerini) Chauffeur/mechanic De Sica aims to impress Lia Franca with a carefree drive to a riverside cafe idyll, topped by his chartbusting crooning of “Parlami d’amore, Mariù” — only trouble is, the boss’s wife recognizes the car! The ensuing complications end at the location-shot Festa Campionaria di Milano. Approx. 67 min. DCP.
“Suggests why women swooned for De Sica in 1932… reveals the charm that deepened as he aged.”
– Caryn James, The New York Times
