    Subject

    "(...) The film, inspired by Goldoni's "The Crafty Widow", is a charming comedy, shot on location and in period costume, with the sole aim of entertaining. No self-proclaimed genius offers us a fresh interpretation of Goldoni's work by showing its "modernity" and using this to analyse today's problem. Miracolo !"
