Synopsis

Marcello Mastroianni is considered by many to be the epitome of the Latin lover, the consummate symbol of Italian masculinity. In "Beyond the Latin Lover", Jacqueline Reich unmasks the reality behind the myth. In her investigation of many of Mastroianni's most famous characters in Italian cinema, she reveals that beneath the image of hyper-masculinity lies the figure of the inetto, the Italian schlemiel at odds with and out of place in a rapidly changing world. Diverse roles throughout his career, the impotent man, the cuckold, and the unruly woman's victim, among others, present an anti-hero caught in traditional but increasingly unsteady modes of masculinity. Far from being a study of just one Italian film star, however, Reich's work demonstrates that Mastroianni's inetto is a reflection of the unstable political, social, and sexual climate of post-war Italy and its constantly shifting gender roles. Jacqueline Reich, Assistant Professor of Italian and Comparative Literature at the State University of New York at Stony Brook, is co-editor of Re-viewing Fascism (IUP, 2002).
