Il signor Max
Well-crafted Italian comedy combining irony and sentiment, based on the comical trope of the person swap, which engenders comical situations: the protagonist, the owner of a Roman newsstand, exploits his striking resemblance with an aristocratic friend to 'steal' his identity during a cruise. It is an ode to Italianness and cinematographic autarky.
The film wins the cup of the Ministero della Cultura Popolare for best Italian direction at the 1937 Mostra di Venezia.
