Silvana has 50 different faces, each one is beautiful!!!
29 September 1999 | by (Beaumont, Pennsylvania USA) – See all my reviews

I loved the musical numbers. I wish I had a truly preserved copy of this movie. I never knew this movie existed until I saw "Caro Diaro". I have become a Silvana fan! "Silvana has 50 different faces, it all depends on which way she will face the camera. Each face she has, is truly beautiful. Bless Her Heart.............
