La Visita

1963 - Comedy

Pina is 36 years old and lives alone in San Benedetto Po, in Lower Mantua. She placed a wedding announcement in the newspaper, which was answered by Adolfo, a clerk from Rome. After a series of letters, the man goes to visit her. The two see each other the first time at the station and after the first moments of embarrassment, they start studying each other. Pina, tired of being lonely, is a practical but romantic girl, and has a relationship with a married truck driver, Renato. Adolfo is a selfish, indolent and susceptible man, he is also very lonely, even if he has a bond in which he does not believe. The great Pietrangeli explores with the usual mocking melancholy, the (im)possible meeting of two solitudes.
