Rimasto vedovo, console britannico a Firenze si trova impreparato ad avere un buon rapporto con i due figlioletti. Il più piccolo ha tutte le sue attenzioni, l'altro ne soffre. Dopo Vittorio De Sica, L. Comencini è in Italia il regista che meglio sa capire (e far recitare) i bambini e per far questo occorre conoscerli bene. Lo dimostra anche questo melodramma, tratto da un mediocre romanzo strappalacrime (1869) di Florence Montgomery che, in virtù di stile e di una lucida strutturazione dei fatti e delle emozioni, Comencini trasforma in un grave affresco dei sentimenti, delicato e coinvolgente

La Bohème by Giacomo Puccini( Visual )

7 editions published between 1982 and 2017 in Italian and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1988, and for one of his last films, Luigi Comencini decided to make an adaptation of the famous Puccini opera La Bohème. Composed in four tableaux, this opera was considered by many as one of Puccini's greatest scores. With perfect orchestral mastery, many harmonic innovations and a theatrical language all of his own, Puccini has demonstrated his unique instinct in music history by uniting elements of musical romanticism with the verismo genre. With over a century of unwavering success, La Bohème is one of the classics that has stood the test of time. Here, Comencini transposes the story into the early twentieth century in an intimate setting. Fully reconstructed in a studio, for both actors and audience, the work is at the crossroads between a filmed opera and an opera film. The story: Paris, 1910. Three friends: Rodolphe the poet, Marcel the painter and Colline the philosopher live on a pittance in an attic room. Mimi, a young neighbour, joins them. Rudolph falls for her. Soon, the girl, who is sick, begins to complain about Rodolphe's jealousy
