Clip: Capriccio all'italiana

Review: In the sixties, the film episode was pretty fashionable. Cast where fashionable and some gems as the participation like Pier Paolo Pasolini to tell habit and virtues of the Italians.
Some time full of poetry such as in "What are the clouds" not to be missed. Travel working Pino signed by Zac was actually directed by Franco Rossi. Zac made only the animations.


TotÚ starring a well-educated and extravagant conformist way has to show his experience "macchiette", not more. The director is almost absent; he is only used to help.
"Capriccio" is fun in its comical execution so blatantly exhibited to pull ahead with the eyes closed. Alfonso Gatto, New Roads, Rome on May 30 1968.
