A Brief Vacation

0 Love It
De Sica and Zavattini administer the last rites over the corpse of neo-realism in this travesty which starts with one of those vociferous Italian domestic squabbles, but soon switches to masturbatory fantasy with a gushy celebration of romance in a mountain TB sanatorium. Bolkan, as the working-class housewife drudging to feed a thankless family who is sent to the clinic at the government's expense, deserves better.
