Emigrantes Details


Italian actor [[Performer~P22447~Aldo Fabrizi~aldofabrizi]] produced, directed, wrote and starred in the Argentine production Emigrantes. The story begins in the tenement district of Rome, where Don Pepe ([[Performer~P22447~Fabrizi~aldofabrizi]]) and his family yearn for a better life. To that end, Don Pepe moves his loved ones to Argentina. In free-form, semidocumentary fashion, the film charts the family's trials and tribulations in acclimating themselves to a new language, climate and culture. The pro-Juan Peron sentiments running through the film indicates to a modern audience that [[Performer~P22447~Fabrizi~aldofabrizi]] had to curry favor with the Argentine dictator (and, one supposes, his wife Evita) to get his film produced in the first place. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
