STORY – 1
DIRECTOR – 1
ACTOR – 1
MUSIC – 0
CULT – 1

VERDICT – 4/5

 
PROS –
1) Two good-natured, plain-looking introverts falling in love with each other. The climactic call by Marty to Clara includes the central theme of the plot of listening to your own heart irrespective of others views.
2) 90 minutes running time with only one other subplot.
3) A role tailor-made for Ernest Borgnine.

 

CONS –
N/A

 

QUOTE –
1.
Marty: All my brothers and brothers-in-laws tell me what a good-hearted guy I am. You don’t get to be good-hearted by accident. You get kicked around long enough, you become a professor of pain.

2.
Ms. Piletti: Two women in the same kitchen, the house burns up.
