MALENA

This is one of my favourite films set in Sicily. I'm going to tell you all about it in the next post!

I would quite like to see that... the only film I remember seeing set in Sicily is The Godfather II!!!

Monica Bellucci? I had never seen her before

hey did you know one of my more bizarre ambitions is to get a part (has to be a speaking part as well) in a French film (well I cannot speak Italian)

haha!

Hi, Gleds. You would be fascinated by this film, I'm sure. have you ever heard of "Cinema Paradiso"? - It's by the same director. Oh, I'm sure you'd wow us all in a Fr film, Gleds!

This is visually a very beautiful film and one I often mean to buy on DVD although it is rather expensive here.

Eurodog said...

Yes, I saw the film too. Very good.

Gledwood said...

Maybe the film could be called "Oubliable"... doesn't that mean "forgettable"..??

I have a coy of Cinema Paradiso and watch it every now and again,enjoying it each time as much as the first time. This sounds like an Italian version of Ryans Daughter;another film that I realy enjoy watching. I have just ordered "Malena" from Amazon for £3.50. Will wait for a rainy windy evening to curl up and watch it. Thank you Welchcakes for introducing me to it?

Jmb, eurodog, pleased that you both like the film too. But you would surely be INOUBLIABLE, Gleds! Hi, MM. I love Cinema Paradiso, by the same director, too. Nice to know I've insprired you! Ciao, your Maj. Yes, it's lovely to have MM back with us.
