You'd need a woman here.
Yes, I would. But it's not easy.
Come on, don't exaggerate. Don't tell me that here even finding a cleaning lady is impossible.
Here a woman wouldn't go in the house of a single man. Just spending time together implies sleeping together.
You can't be serious.
Oh, yes I am.

this movie did more than any other Italian film i've seen to interest me in italy itself--the people, the land, the culture. it also opened my mind to the intelligence of the uneducated among us--i loved that guilia was so real and right-n and so full of peasant superstition that in no way interfered with her ability to "get it." i have begun to travel in italy and having seen this film i am driven to see the south and visit the carlo levi house and museum. his paintings see into the object, to me, like a quality black and white study which i find the most expressive medium. as soon as i see the faces in the beginning of this film, i am drawn in. i found the melancholy music somewhat sentimental (like the music in truffaut's films) but a necessary comfort.
