On vacation on Mars: Christian De Sica during a scene

The actor Massimo Boldi, answering questions from the newspaper, spoke about the recent project In Vacanza su Marte, in which he was the protagonist, admitting that he considers it a regret from his career: “It wasn’t funny. It was a film made on the cheap, we had to work, there was Covid and we had bills to pay. But it didn’t come out well: if there isn’t a minimum of truth in the plot it doesn’t work“.

The relationship with Christian De Sica

Furthermore, speaking of his relationship with Christian De Sica, Boldi wanted to deny the rumors concerning an alleged quarrel with his friend: “I hadn’t signed the renewal with De Laurentiis because I had received an indispensable proposal from Berlusconi and so we separated. But Christian and I have never fought“. The actor recalled how deep the bond that binds him to his colleague is, arguing that they have been friends for over 50 years and it is therefore impossible to argue, “at most we discuss”.

Boldi recalled the moment he first met Christian: “I was playing in La Pattuglia Azzurra and he was trying to be a singer. He sang the same songs he sings today“.
