- I just love this so much. I really think it should included in top ten list for it's brilliance and truthfulness.
- La Strada is truly an amazing film, one of the best period, but it is not as good as 8 1/2: fellini's best and most definitive film

Don't forget. . .
- Il Postino. This movie reminded us of the romance of Neruda's poerty, the troubled past of Chile, the simplicity of the Mediterranean in the fifties and, of course, every man who saw this film fell madly for Maria Grazia Cuccinotta.

- Romanzo Criminale is an awesome movie about the gang scene in Italy in the 1970's. It is a mixture of some American films, such as Blow/We Own the Night...etc. I watched it with many of my Italian friends and they all said it is a must-see...diverse group of people and everyone loved it.
