The Champ

0 Love It
Save it
Syrupy schlock from perhaps the most sentimental of all Italian directors, a pointless update of King Vidor's '30s weepie about a former champion boxer's attempts to hang on to his doting son when his estranged wife reappears on the scene. An all too real and common dilemma treated in tediously glossy fashion.
