What is Rome, Italy’s Capital City, today? What has this metropolis become? Who lives in it, dreams it and measures it with their footsteps or by looking out at the chaotic traffic through the windows of cars and buses, one of the thousands of faces that are also packed into the subways and trams.
Dedicated to Italian icon Alberto Sordi, Ettore Scola’s love letter to Rome is a playful mockumentary, winking at the director’s own commedia all’italiana legacy. Featuring the bewitching Stefania Sandrelli and an Armando Trovajoli score, the film pays tribute to the city’s colorful eccentricities.
