Marriage Italia...
Perfect 66 Points 1964

A pre-sexual revolution Italian trifle, Matrimonio All’Italiana packs a considerevole punch 50 years on.

Consider Sophia Loren – in her prime. Screen sirens come no hotter or more joyous.

Very Good 66 Points 1963

Federico Fellini’s 8½ is self-referential in the extreme, as his fever-dream of a movie about the making of a movie parodies the self-indulgence of its maker. Nice work if you can get it.

Doleful economies are often enabled by Social Democratic governments, a reality brought to life in Two Days, One Night. Jobs are few and far between in 2014 Belgium, with a job at a government-subsidized solar-cell factory being the difference between home ownership and public housing. "The Dol…
