A couple Senilità
she was married to Franco Cristaldi, and in Italy, Cristaldi's films have been re-released with English subtiles, so, we'll cross the fingers.
He produced a lot of great films; aside from Senilita
I see he was producer on Gli Indifferenti
in Spain you can find Il bell"Antonio, a Bolognini masterpiece with Mastroianni and your Cardinale. Italian + Spanish audio and subt.
I've been wanting to see that forever. I know it had a VHS release in America with English subtitles, so I guess I'll hunt that down whenever I buy a new VCR.
Meanwhile, I hadn't even heard of La viaccia
, but I see it has Jean-Paul Belmondo co-starring with Cardinale (and another Piero Piccioni score) so it must be good!
The death of a wealthy patriarch in 1885 sets off an interfamily power struggle. Son Ferdinando buys out his other relatives in order to gain full control over the dead man's property. But Ferdinando's country-bumpkin nephew Amerigo holds out. Amerigo's stance is weakened when he heads for the city and meets prostitute Bianca. To support her in the manner in which she is accustomed, Amerigo steals from his uncle. Disgraced in the eyes of his family, Amerigo decides to stay near his beloved Bianca by becoming a bouncer in her brothel.
I need to start a Cardinale crusade and get everything
she did in her prime out there on DVD with English subtitles.
