Synopsis by Hal Erickson
I Sogni nel Cassetto was released in the U.S. as Dreams in a Drawer. The hero and heroine are students in a Northern Italian university. Though he barely knows her, the immature Mario (Enrico Pagani) proposes marriage to the equally childlike Lucia (Lea Masari). Both boy and girl are forced to grow up in a hurry when Lucia becomes pregnant. An unexpected tragedy sobers Mario to the fact that he still has a long way to go before attaining true manhood. During the preview process, I Sogni nel Cassetto was screened with two different endings, allowing audiences to make a choice. In Hollywood, it is likely that the final decision would have been very different.
