    This film is crowded with the blessings of neorealism influences: beautiful locations, captured with great cinematography, as well as an attractive and talented cast. Perhaps though, it is too crowded? While each vignette is a joy to watch, they lack accord. It’s like a dish with all the right ingredients, but the portions are off. I enjoyed it enough that it makes me want to see Franco Brusati’s later works. This film was only his second, and has that feel of a vision in the shadow of other director-heroes. He won awards and nominations for later works, and you can certainly see brilliance in “the disorder” struggling to find its own voice.
