Actors: Giancarlo Giannini, Candice Bergen, Michael Tucker
Also known as: La fine del mondo nel nostro solito letto in una notte piena di pioggia, The End of the World in Our Usual Bed in a Night Full of Rain, En una noche repleta de lluvia
Description: In English-Candy and Giancarlo provide their own voices, others are dubbed (badly).
The usual Lina Wertmüller grab-bag melange of bedroom politics colliding with Marxism-but this time with Candice Bergen! I’m sure a student of film theory as it relates to mid-century political philosophy might find a meaningful message in this little tale of 15 years in the life of couple. The B&W still footage of man’s inhumanity to man and the trademarked Wertmuller chorus of crones just seemed a little heavy handed to me (yes like the picture of Marx in make-up).
The film’s “Full of Rain” greatest fault (other than lack of naked Candy) is that it follows the thoroughly debunked notion that Giancarlo Giannini is even 1/4 as interesting as Candice Bergen.
Review of Night Full of Rain movie: She was an American photographer, he – an Italian journalist with leftist views. Lizzie and Paolo first met in Rome, then – in San Francisco, and after that it did not leave. But the couple of them did not work. He likes the changes, Paolo takes a real conservative family life, and Lizzie with her feminist protests against the manners of the role of the cook and laundress. Soon in the marital bed to happen end of the world.
