The Movie Vitamins
Music and Cinema... great force! I do love arts ;)
Yesterday with my Florence mates (Ilaria, Monia and Cristina.. those who know my website know well whom I am talkin about ;)) we went out to Movie evening pleasure. A very established Wednesday tradition, that I keep alive also when being in Lodi with my other creek and Stef.
We chose to watch the awesome "Le Chiavi di Casa" of Italian Movie maker Gianni Amelio: the touchin history of a father who meets his differently able son only when he's 15. The story shows the deep feelings, fears, doubts and utopias of dealing life with a kid "twice important". The movie is tender, real, not bending to an unrealistically complete "happy ending" but very keen at showing love and affection through sacrifice and honesty. It was an extraordinary movie to watch: I advice EVERYONE to try and see this movie, not only Italians, but everyone who can access a movie hall which shows international filmmaking. The movie was presented on the Venice Festival just a week ago. It's a shame it didn't win the Golden Lion there.
Okay.. gotta go workin out something :) Enjoy your day and.. I chose a funny picture of me today ;) I KNOW guitar is not played that way ;)
