Carlo Verdone is considered by many the heir of Alberto Sordi, expecially when they acted together in Troppo forte and In viaggio con papa', in these films many similarities with Sordi were apparent, the popular language, the romanesco, and the embodiment of Italian middle man in the '80s that Sordi did in the '50s and '60s.
In the last ten years Verdone has shown in his films the anguishes and the neurosis of Italian modern man. He is the brother-in-law of Christian de Sica. His father is an appreciated university Italian professor in cinema history.
