    In order of merit:



    1.The Easy Life (1962) ***1/2
    2.The Success (1963) (uncredited) ***
    3.Vedo Nudo (1969) **1/2
    4.How Funny Can Sex Be? (1973) **1/2
    5.The Treasure Of San Gennaro (1966) **1/2
    6.Kill Me With Kisses (1968) **1/2
    7.Scandal In Sorrento (1955) **1/2
    8.Venice, The Moon And You (1958) **



    Dino Risi is, again, perhaps not very well-known outside of his native country but, at the very least, THE EASY LIFE (arguably his masterpiece) is a key Italian film of the 1960s and should be much more appreciated. Besides, he also directed the original version of SCENT OF A WOMAN (1974) which, unfortunately, I’ve never actually watched myself despite the occasional Italian TV screening over the years.

    I also have the following on VHS: IL VEDOVO (1959), UN AMORE A ROMA (1960), IN NOME DEL POPOLO ITALIANO (1971), TELEFONI BIANCHI (1976) and FANTASMA D' AMORE (1981).
