This is my favourite movie and story, my grandfather Elio Bordignon is on it. I am Italian.,
18 October 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I am Greta and this is the best Italian Movie ever and IT WILL ALWAYS BE. The scenery, the Castle,the atmosphere and Italy! My grandfather is in it. He is my grandfather!!! The movie with Elio Bordignon and Ermanno Olmi as Director is very pleasant. The story is very atypical but very original.It is a story where a boy goes to work in this beautiful Castle as a waiter. He then realises how things are and he starts to experience life. At the beginning he is just a young unexperienced boy but later he starts to be self-consciousness of his work. You can easily see the psychology of the character changing time to times. My grandfather is the Butler of the Castle and one of the main characters. His main work is to prepare the Saloon for the feasts for the Old Lady!. I strongly believe that Mr Olmi (with Mr Bertolucci and Mr Zeffirelli) is able to tell a complex story with the simplicity of a genius. It is to be said that Mr Olmi (The Director) is known to be a big name in the History of the Italian Cinema. Netherless he won in Cannes and Venice Film Festivals. I had the chance to meet him and my grandmother to cook for him once.Please, get the movie and let me know. NONNO ELIO THE BEST!!!
