Incompreso L'incompris by Luigi Comencini( Visual )

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
