      Released Sep 18, 1998 1h 42m Drama List
      Reviews 40% Audience Score 100+ Ratings Two separate narratives tell stories of life in Italy. In the first, set in 1930s Rome, Felice (Antonio Albanese), an aging opera singer, is forced to quit singing and become an accountant. While he sleeps, he bursts out in fits of laughter. His suspicious wife, Marika (Elena Ghiaurov), thinks she's being laughed at. The conflict that ensues could ruin their marriage. In the second piece, a kidnapping in contemporary Sicily is eerily similar to a crime that took place a century earlier. Read More Read Less

      Audience Member on the big screen, and despite the poetic and beautiful cinematography, pace, and music, I was left wondering: what was the point of these two short stories? They are very grim and dark, dealing with suicide and murder. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/26/23 Full Review Read all reviews
