The Fortune Cookie - cinema review
directed by Billy Wilder, starring Jack Lemmon, Walter Matthau, Judi West
b/w, 125', 35mm, original English version with Italian subtitles
A cameraman is accidentally knocked over during a football game. His brother-in-law convince him to fake a paralysis in order to get money from the insurance company. Mocking greed and the obsession for money, Wilder sets up a hilarious whirl of misunderstandings, thus adding an essential brushstroke to his painting of human nature. Lemmon and Matthau are an extraordinary couple, the latter winning an Academy Award for his performance.
