A new documentary on the iconic career of Alberto Sordi — arguably Italy's most beloved comic actor of the mid-twentieth century — provides an amusing yet in-depth account of his career in cinema through clips, photographs, interviews, and testimonials in the spirit of his brilliant life in the arts. A performer of incredible range, Sordi (1920 – 2003) also had a forceful dramatic presence and, in later years, directed many productions.
Q&A with director Luca Verdone will follow.
