A riveting performance by Sophia Loren.
28 April 2016 | by writerinhhSee all my reviews

It's impossible not to be captured by Sophia Loren's performance. She certainly retains her earthy beauty at the age of seventy-nine. And, although this movie is less than thirty minutes long, Ms. Loren is still able to perform a wide range of heartfelt emotions that draw in the viewer. At the end, one wishes this film were longer. Although I don't speak Italian, I love listening to this beautiful language, especially as spoken by the ultimate professional that is Ms. Loren. I also liked the "small" roles such as that of the maid. The maid was perfectly cast and her veal parmigiana looked delicious. Also, bravo to the director, Mr. Ponti. I highly recommend this film.
