The charm of Marcello Mastroianni goes beyond his debonair smoothness, beyond his perfect face. He was an actor that took challenging roles with avant garde filmmakers. He was the lover of the flawless Catherine Deneuve. He was the embodiment of everything ideal about men including a gentle, irresistible sense of humor and dashing good looks. He is really spectacular in all his films, but the must sees are Big Deal on Madonna Street, Divorce – Italian Style, 8 1/2, the wild and under appreciated 10th Victim, and his most famous role in La Dolce Vita.
