Profumo di donna (film di Dino Risi del 1974)

Non di rado un film è in grado di partorire il proprio rifacimento, magari con delle licenze narrative: uno tra essi è PROFUMO DI DONNA del 1974, regia di Dino Risi e protagonista Vittorio Gassman, rifatto nel 1992, da Martin Brest e Al Pacino attore di punta.

Il soggetto prende spunto dal romanzo di Giovanni Arpino IL BUIO E IL MIELE del 1969. Fausto, un capitano dell’esercito in pensione affetto da cecità e monco della mano sinistra a causa di una granata incautamente maneggiata ed esplosa, decide di andare a far visita al collega e amico Vincenzo, cieco a sua volta: gli viene così assegnato il giovane Giovanni Bertazzi come suo attendente e i due si mettono in viaggio, prima fermata a Genova, dove Fausto va con Mirka, una prostituta, e rende visita al cugino prete Carlo. Poi la destinazione è Napoli, dove trascorre del tempo col compagno di sventura e la sua combriccola di cui fa parte Sara, una bellissima ragazza innamorata di Fausto dai tempi in cui ci vedeva, tuttavia tenuta a distanza dallo stesso. Un giorno i due amici, afflitti da una vita vissuta nell’oscurità, tentano con esito avverso il suicidio, ma per loro fortuna la polizia insabbia l’accaduto mentre Sara nasconde il capitano in un casolare deserto, sostenuto dalla donna e da Giovanni, con quest’ultimo farà rientro in caserma e solo allora il disperato e afflitto protagonista capisce che Sara è il suo rifugio.

PROFUMO DI DONNA è un film che fa riflettere sulla solitudine, pur essendo circondato da attenzioni, con la voglia di sopravvivere che fa a botte con quella di mollare e farla finita. Tuttavia prima dei “titoli di coda” la speranza di andare avanti rimane intatta. Gassman e Risi tornano a far faville dopo i fasti de IL SORPASSO, inoltre va sottolineato l’apporto del personaggio incompreso ma irriducibile di Sara interpretato da Agostina Belli e quello di Alessandro Momo il giovane inesperto attendente la cui semplicità conquista Fausto e il pubblico, purtroppo rimasto ucciso in un incidente mentre guidava la sua motocicletta cercando di sorpassare un taxi, una settimana prima di compiere 18 anni, mezzo prestatogli dalla collega Eleonora Giorgi all’epoca sua fidanzata.
