ORCHESTRA REHEARSAL REVIEWED
“Orchestra Rehearsal” is pretty funny. But, it’s also one of those on-the-nose allegories about how much the Italian government sucked. Sporting the last score from Nino Rota, Fellini found ample material to mine. The kicker is that for a 72 minute long comedy, the jokes are never that amazing. Not all comedies are going to be legendary, but the humor needs to help you look past simple repeated points. The film is lesser Fellini, but it’s the kind of oddity that deserves to be recognized in the director’s larger work.
Honestly, I feel that a larger Fellini TV box set could’ve worked better. But, I trust that Arrow has the notion to revisit the material.
