1980's classic italian comedies

The 1980's:

During the same period that some Italian comedies were stooping to lower tastes, other Italian comic movies became more refined with actors like Enrico Montesano, Ornella Muti, Francesco Nuti, and CarloVerdone.Two famous comedies from this genre are:

 

  • Amici miei
  • Amici miei atto II

While Carlo Verdone is still considered mostly light comedy, the following movies are (slightly)  more sophisticated:

  • Maledetto il giorno che ti ho incontrato: Verdone Margherita Buy
  • Ma che colpa abbiamo noi Verdone, Margherita Buy
  • Perdiamoci di vista: Verdone, Asia Argento
  • Bianco rosso e verdone : Verdone
  • Viaggi di nozze
  • Il mio migflior nemico
  • L' Amore e' eterno fiche' dura  Verdone, Stefania Rocca
  • Manuale d' Amore

The sons of Tognazzi and Gassman are back in the comic movie business in a new modern style:

  • Fiesta Gianmarco Tognazzi / Alessandro Gassmann
  • D Abbatantuomo :
  • Mediterraneo - Available in the US, D'Abbatantuomo

I've been reading your site and it is fantastic. I just love the more recent Italian movies so much and have started writing about this - not for profit or anything, just for fun. I've been writing mostly about movies that are available to Americans but I have so many favorites that are not as easy to see without a region free DVD player.

Anyway, I'd love it if you'd check it out, leave a comment. Tell me if these are movies that you love too. Tell me if I don't know what I'm talking about!
