Description: Seven top Italian filmmakers pooled their talents on the omnibus reality feature Amore in Citta (Love in the City). The film is divided into six separate episodes; the first of these, Paid Love, is a straightforward study of prosititution written and directed by Carlo Lizzani. In the second, Michelangelo Antonioni's Attempted Suicide, several would-be suicides discuss the reasons for their despair. Dino Risi's Paradise for Four Hours is a humorous glance at a provincial dance hall. Federico Fellini's Marriage Agency finds an investigative reporter posing as a husband-to-be. Cesara Zavattini and Umberto Maselli's Story of Caterina dramatizes the true story of a young unwed mother. And Italians Stare, written and directed by Alberto Lattuada, illustrates the various girl-watching techniques of Italian males. Among the actors particpating in the six vignettes are Ugo Tognazzi, Maressa Gallo, and Caterina Riogoglioso. Originally intended as the first installment in a movie magazine titled The Spectator, Amore in Citta was released at 110 minutes; most American prints are bereft of the opening Paid Love segment.~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide
