A Special Day

Sophia Loren and Marcello Mastroianni, in a “together again” appearance (1977), generate more nostalgia than drama in this frail social parable by Ettore Scola. On the day of Hitler's visit to fascist Rome, two loners (he is a homosexual waiting to be deported; she is a downtrodden housewife) enjoy a brief encounter. Scola smothers his wistful love story (and it has its moments) under the dead weight of gratuitous politics, overly coy narrative tricks, and an ostentatious camera style.
