Overwrought
21 July 2001 | by moonspinner55See all my reviews

Extremely moody melodrama (told mostly in flashback) has young war veteran struggling to adjust to civilian life, bringing over Italian bride to live with him and his parents. Trouble begins almost immediately, however, because of the soldier's mother, who is a neurotic mess. Film takes an eternity setting up its story (which is pretty basic) and John Ericson is terribly miscast in the leading role (when trying for seriousness, this well-scrubbed youth only looks petulant and selfish). Rod Steiger fans might want to take a look; this was his first movie, and he's very good as a psychiatrist. *1/2 from ****
