GRAN BOLLITO (BLACK JOURNAL / 1977) (BLU-RAY)
Starring:  Rita Tushingham, Shelley Winters, Laura Antonelli, Renato Pozzetto, Alberto Lionello, Max von Sydow
Directed By:  Mauro Bolognini
Composed By:  Enzo Jannacci

“Gran Bollito unravels secrets of a pre-war Italian condominium with the skill of a cartoon magician. It is as though the sentimental treasures in Rimbaud’s ‘Le Buffet’ are brought back to life. The faded laces, the locks of hair, the dried flowers: they are all given a second chance. However, the glamour and camaraderie conceal some dark dealings.”
– Adrian Liberto, Film-News.co.uk

Mauro Bolognini, that master of Italian costume and period dramas, gives us a peculiar slice of Grand Guignol with Gran Bollito (Black Journal, 1977). The film stars Shelley Winters as a mother so insanely over-protective of her grown son that she decides to make a deal with death by offering alternate victims, plucked from among her fellow tenants in a 1938 Italian apartment building; among these are several men playing women, including the one and only Max Von Sydow. Laura Antonelli and Rita Tushingham also star.
