Il Boom Reviews:

Sweet-sour comedy on Italy's 1950's rage to receive rich as quick as possible !!The lead actor (Alberto Sordi) plays the part of a psuedo businessman who to satisfy his wife's craving for luxury and a "respectable life" becomes heavily indebted. In desperation he agrees to sell a precious part of his body for a huge sum of money.But just before the crucial operation he panics !The entire movie is a grotesque comedy on Italy's obsession of those times to be "respectable" i.e. be rich,show it,and give the impression of being part of the respectable upper-middle class even though "secretly" you are just other of those "noveau riches". The movie is very realistic and at times hilarious !Worth to see!


It may well be Vittorio De Sica's greatest sixties (overlooked) movie.A very somber comedy,with Alberto Sordi on the top of his form.This film has a contemporary feel:what should one person do to stay (or to become ) rich? A broke businessman is approached with a smile by a middle-aged lady (wife of a wealthy man) .He believes she wants to create him her lover .Little did he know she would ask for one of the most precious parts of his body (no,it is not what you are thinking of,but I won't write a spoiler and reveal what it is).Like Comencini's "Lo Scopone Scientifico" ,"Il Boom" deals with man's exploitation of his fellow man. De Sica ,Comencini and Dino Risi are much more available directors than Fellini or Antonioni but their words don't cut;they bite.


One of the oddities of movie distribution is that even movies by acclaimed filmmakers such as Vittorio DeSica (four Oscar winners) sometimes fall through the cracks. DeSica's 1963 Italian comedy is finally receiving a U.S. release via Rialto. The restoration is excellent.The movie itself is quite nice with a script by other Italian movie legend - Cesare Zavattini (DeSica's BICYCLE THIEF & UMBERTO D) and starring the nice Alberto Sordi. IL BOOM is about the post-war boom in Italy and the Dolce Vita lifestyle those who exploited it were able to live. Sordi is happily married to a trophy wife and they have a tiny child, but he finds himself spending more than he earns to hold up 'appearances'. But, like DeSica's another 'comedies' such as MIRACLE IN MILAN, there is everytime more on the filmmakers mind than jokes. Indeed, IL BOOM gets cute dark - very dark, in fact. There are some awkward comedy moments, but the movie works as a satirical cautionary tale. Fine cinematography by Armando Nannuzzi and a rollicking 60s lounge score by Piero Piccioni really brings the Roman Sweet Life to the screen.++++++++++++SPOILER ALERT+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++P.S. Interesting plot mission that parallels the Night Gallery pilot segment directed by some long forgotten nobody Director called Spielberg or something...
