    Lattuada isn’t as well known as Comencini, Scola, Monicelli but he cerainly deserves to be (re)discovered.
    In the last few days I watched La Spiaggia, Il capotto, Mafioso, I dolci inganni. All of them good or remarkable movies. A good ten are available on Youtube or with English or Spanish subtitles.
    Let’s hope that one day we can find them all on Rarefilmm.
    Thanks to the Rarefilmm team.
    An other italian director to discover : Pietrangeli.
