Storyline

Set in modern day Rome, Bits and Pieces has been compared to Short Cuts, as it has no central characters and multiple storylines. It starts with a robbery at a restaurant. Moving to a "fence" and a journalist. Then a dental salesman whose wife is murdered by their son. A social worker who's having an affair. A man returning to Rome after living in England for many years. And so on... Written by David Morgans <D.R.Morgans@wlv.ac.uk>

Bellucci Fans Give This Film A Miss!
10 January 2002 | by Warbull99See all my reviews

Film about a 24 hour day in Rome, with 30 stories interwoven with 130 speaking parts. Monica Bellucci fans give this movie a miss! She appears in one scene less than one minute long, in a 145 minute movie...Not to mention it arrives 1 hour into this agonizingly slow film. You've been warned!
