Ferreri #5

El Cochecito (Marco Ferreri, 1960) This one, of course, is a great little movie. I love things like this, rambling comic worlds or communities that are offbeat without straining to be too quirky. Unforced quirk, I suppose. It puts me in mind of certain Ford films, and certain British comedies (like maybe The Happiest Days of Your Life or Genevieve) ... cloistered little worlds that might be happy and charming but might also be dark, venal, petty, etc.
