Italian Movies Chapt. II Actresses

Do you think it’s all about Sofia Loren or Anna Magnani? I picked some of the actresses that featured the decades between the ’50s and the early ’70s (and more, as they provided, beside the beauty, to be very good). Have a look at this gallery: MORE Silvana Mangano was a nice dancer, in 1951she…

Italian Movies Chapt. I: Movies that never get old

As the echoes of the oscar prizes aren’t fading away yet, I decided it could be worth to pool a gallery of picts of  Italian movies that have a sort of showbiz dimension, the ones produced with the international audience in mind: IL POSTINO,1994. directed by the brit Michael Radford, based on a novel by the…

LA GRANDE BELLEZZA

Right, it is true, it too obvious, but yeah, I can’t avoid mentioning the Oscar prizes. While Europe is witnessing signs of war at its eastern corner, while Venezuela is still in a state of turmoil, in few weeks Italy, the underperforming Italy, the unreliable Italy, changed government, increased, apparently,  speed in decision making, tackled priority governance…

Have you seen Rapunzel there?

The new (great ) Disney movie Frozen features a great resemblance with another blockbuster I loved; Tangled.

the Incredibles

Let’s admit it, super heroes movies sucks. They are sometimes great action movies, but they hardly get close to the empathy and emotion of a comic book. If you used to read it you know what I mean. In early days, the limit was to obtain the stunning special effect; for this reason we had…
