      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...

      The sadness and joy in marriage are memorable. I can't stand this kind of love scene that only one person gives silently. The broken emotional scene in the middle almost made me cry. Roland's acting is really...

      Is this movie trying to write the struggle history of independent women who can't cry? But in the end, it's still the patriarchal routine where the mother is expensive, isn't she slapped in the...

      The three-act narrative is told from the perspectives of different characters, making the story smooth and meaningful. The ups and downs of dramatic conflict and slightly exaggerated humorous dialogue make this somewhat sad story endearing and interesting. The 29-year-old Sophia Roland is a stunner in the world. So beautiful, but her acting skills are...
