Synopsis/Review
As Emma Gramatica appeared in a primary role in this film, our guess is that Rossano appeared in non-speaking supporting roles, both in this film and in "Il destino di Tasca" while still a member of the Gramatica theater group. Synopsis: Piccolo Hotel (aka "Small Hotel") uses the titular establishment to weave together a vast tapestry of subplots, a la Grand Hotel. The guests include a domineering mother (Lola Braccini), her petulant daughter (Bianca Doria) and the daughter's gigolo boyfriend (Guido Notari). Also on hand is a worldly vamp (Laura Nucci) who also falls for the boyfriend, and the chronic-gambler son (Andrea Checchi) of the hotel's self-sacrificing landlady (Emma Grammatica). Though the film is set in Budapest, the characters are more Mediterranean than middle-European. Piccolo Hotel was one of the entries in the Vienna Biennial Film Festival."
