Anytime Is A Good Time For "Che ora è?"!
24 October 2002 | by (Yurp) – See all my reviews

I don't know what paradise looks like except: there surely will be a cinema in it, and "Che ora è" will be playing on a giant screen, in original Italian, I will be able to speak Italian and manage to sneak in for free because the beautiful box office girl fancies me.

But mainly there will be "Che ora è?" playing.
