Not every postwar Italian film was a slice of unadulterated neorealism. Proof of this can be found in the frothy, escapist musical I Live as I Please. Opera star Ferruccio Tagliavini heads the cast as a gullible peasant who is targeted for persecution by his practical-joking brother. Led to believe that he's landed a singing job, Tagliavini packs up his worldly possessions and heads to Rome. He eventually finds out he's been duped, but by this time he's found steady work as a singer, so who cares? The story comes full circle as Tagliavini finds happiness and romance in his own back yard.
