      I'll give you the first full score

      I had hardly heard of Vittorio de Sica before, I went to see Mastroianni and found out he was not the Italian version of RDJ? Same thing. The heroine is really good-looking, she is very flamboyant, but she doesn't hate it at all, she has a temperament like a green baby, especially when the two of them stop there in the final wedding scene, it's perfect!

      In fact, I don't know much about Italian films, that is, Beautiful Life + Pianist at Sea, but I always feel that Italian sounds...

      Italian wedding

      Sophia Loren has always been my aesthetic blind spot when I was a child. When I was a child, I thought this woman with a big mouth was so strange that I never saw a Sophia movie after "Cassandra Bridge". If it weren't for seeing Mastroianni, I'm afraid I wouldn't know the beauty of this woman in my life. I have seen this romantic comedy and I can't laugh it out. A woman's 22-year marriage defense battle has revealed from beginning to end that it is actually the sadness in her heart....

      Italian wedding

      In a feminist film, Dominique, a rich boy who is merciful everywhere, meets Philomena, a humble prostitute. It seems that the male protagonist uses money to control his life, but behind the scenes, the female protagonist uses him to change the fate of himself and even his children. It can be optimistically believed that the female protagonist loves the male protagonist wholeheartedly, gave birth to three children for her, and has a happy ending, or it can be considered that the female...

      Marriage and Divorce: A Certainty as a Comedy

      This year's Beijing Film Festival has two very interesting films with very similar names. One is "Italian Marriage" and the other is "Italian Divorce". The two films were shown at the same time. The audience first experienced an ironic "marriage". Immediately afterwards, there was a comical "divorce", and there was a lot of fun in the marriage relationship that was divided and closed.

      Both films are comedies. Just listening to the names will make you mistakenly think that...

      If the filming was a little longer than the current one and a half hours, it would be better for the two of them to have known each other for more than 20 years. "Tomorrow" is slightly...

      Through Desica's eyes, you can always get closer to the suffering of the world. Reality is amplified by comedy or tragedy. Behind those tears and laughter, what makes a simple person become a tragic hero and heroine. After the skyscraper was destroyed by the bomb, is he still...

      I prefer marriage to divorce. In addition to the advantages of divorce, the reversal of marriage in the plot is even more unexpected and extremely explosive. The heroine's feminist thought is even more shining and moved me to tears. Fortunately, there is a happy ending in the end, so that people can believe that love has a good beginning and a good...
