The Eyes, the Mouth
Gli occhi, la bocca
A once famous actor becomes intrigued by his dead brother’s ex-fiancé in this slyly funny movie.
Dir Marco Bellocchio
With Lou Castel, Ángela Molina, Emmanuelle Riva, Michel Piccoli
A once famous actor (Castel) returns home to attend the funeral of his brother, who has committed suicide, only to become enmeshed in family politics and the life of his sibling’s sometime fiancée. A slyly funny, sort-of-twisted sequel to Bellocchio’s first film Fists in the Pocket, this mixes references to the original story with elements of autobiography.
