The best Italian movie I have ever seen.
26 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

First of all, I wonder why this movie has not become famous, or why it is not publicized. In front of this movie, even the celebrated Italian movies like La Strada or Bicycle Thief are nowhere. I came to know about this movie very luckily while preparing for my IELTS examination through a theme-based product called Smarten Your English through Movies. Because I'm passionate about movies, I thought I will learn automatically by adopting a theme-based study material.

This is a costume drama. Cornelia is a Venetian countess who is about to be married. However, when her parents discover she is pregnant as a result of a secret affair, she is kept hidden away in their country house. A peasant girl, Rosa, who is also pregnant, is hired to be Cornelia's companion. The two find they have some things in common although they are from completely opposite ends of the social spectrum, but they are unaware of a plan concocted by Cornelia's family and co-ordinated by her nurse.

Well set and well directed. Kudos for the photographic angle alone. Acting is superb.

Theme may look feminine. All characters are women. Both leading actresses are pregnant. There are little intimate woman-woman friendship.

Overall I rate this movie nine.
