Sight and Sound - 02/01/2012
"The rare instance of an Italian adaptation of classic Russian literature....[A] nearly forgotten neorealism-era comedy..."

Product Description:

The classic Nicolas Gogal fable THE OVERCOAT is given a European flavor by Italian filmmaker Alberto Lattuada; some consider the film to be Lattuada's best "psychological study." Comedian Renato Rascel plays a nebbishy nobody who spends his life-savings on a fancy overcoat. Suddenly, the nobody becomes a somebody, proving beyond doubt that clothes make the man. And then one day, the overcoat is stolen...Fleshing out the short-but-bittersweet Gogol original are several colorful new characters, including a publicity-hungry small-town mayor, played by Giulio Stival. The background music was composed by director Lattuada's wife Felice. American prints of IL CAPPATO are missing a so-called "naughty" telephone exchange between the mayor and his silken mistress.
