Review of We All Loved Each Other So Much (1974)

Moving picture, 124 minutes

Seen in 2021.

Modern Italian history told through a trio of WW2 partisans who fall in love with the same woman.

Playful filmmaking and cinephilia throughout. This somewhat damages the pathos, but the analogue nostalgia is powerful, from the actors trying in vain to look young, to the lack of synchronized dialogue, to the proggy score on a Hammond and an electric guitar. Also, Aldo Fabrizi as the parodic mogul looks amazing.
