L’udienza (1972) Film Review


Amedeo (Enzo Jannacci) is a man with a problem and he needs to speak to the Pope about it. But try as he may, he cannot. There are a variety of different people who are getting in his way, and some perhaps on his side… although it is very hard to tell as I have no idea about what happened.

It’s absurd and confusing yet I quite liked it. The cinematography (recently restored) is beautiful and I quite liked the characters even though they often treat each other quite badly – there is a lot of passionate slapping and the like. So odd. And funny. But mostly odd.
