This year I discovered this real gem of a movie, "IO LA CONOSCEVO BENE", from italian director Antonio Pietrangeli with the very young Stefania Sandrelli as Adriana, a country girl who dreams of becoming famous in Rome. She tries her best but the results are mostly disappointing...
The film offers a great cast of male sidekicks like Ugo Tognazzi, Franco Nero, Robert Hoffmann, Jean-Claude Brialy and is a bittersweet settlement with the desire for stardom and frightening in its current issue.
