Disappointing
22 January 2006 | by Jackstone54See all my reviews

"Regina Roma" is one of the last films starring Ava Gardner and Anthony Quinn. Alas, it proves a disappointment,a one-set drama of the old "kitchen sink" variety. Gardner plays the smothering mother of the late Ray Sharkey who brings home his fiancée,Regina, played by the legendary European actress Anna Karina. Gardner, Quinn and Sharkey mouth clichéd dialogues. Only Karina emerges unscathed because she is kept silent most of the time! And she has been de-glamourized, hiding her big beautiful blue eyes behind chunky frames and sheathing her splendid body in dowdy clothes. The movie seems padded out with flashbacks that don't match the main action.The DVD I bought lists (quite improbably) a famous orchestra conductor as the movie's producer.
