The Dust of Naples (Polvere di Napoli)
In this anthology film with five episodes about modern-day Naples, director Antonio Capuano updates Vittorio De Sica's The Gold of Naples (1954): In Seven Part Scopa a young card-player gambles against local butchers; in Charlie and Jerry two sax players minus instruments entertain at a wedding by reviving old routines of Eduardo De Filippo and Toto); The Wedding tells the story of impoverished newlyweds; Fred follows Argentine tourists in Pompei; and in Richard Gere an aspiring actor has a vision of his hero. Shown at the 1998 Cannes Film Festival. ~ Bhob Stewart, Rovi
