Steno, the kind genius


At the barber’s he plunges into Poe and in the evening before going to sleep he commits himself to the pages of Dostoyevsky. The Steno that emerges from the pages of his diary is unexpected, witty and kind, a thread that runs through this biopic as it traces the life of the master of Italian comedy. Steno, aka Stephen Vanzina, was a sincere and brilliant chronicler of his era, leaving behind unforgettable films like Cops and Robbers, The Overtaxed and An American in Rome.
