Sweet, funny -- a happy film
10 June 2002 | by (Portland, Oregon) – See all my reviews

My goodness there are some cranky "reviewers" here. This Italian film is sweet and hopeful -- does everything need to be "realistic"? I mean, this isn't a documentary, it's a story! Charming acting, especially by the lead.

Excellent filming and editing, and what better place than Venice to shoot a movie?
