Notes from the attic: Pietro Germi

Here are two must-see comedies from Italian director Pietro Germi: Divorce Italian Style (1961) and Seduced and Abandoned (1964).
They're about crazy Sicilian characters, awkward situations, ruined honor and teenage love interests. If I had to pick one it would be Seduced and Abandoned. They're both available next door at 9th Street Video.

Divorce daydream.


I admit it: what first drew me to these films was the awesome artwork on this DVD case. Well done, Criterion.
