I had the opportunity to see this film during the New Line Italian Cinema Festival at Lincoln Center over the summer.
I loved the storyline and acting. The music was fabulous too.
All the actors were great. Especially Alessio Boni. He is such a "gem". If only he could come to the US and be the next international star. The range of his acting is monumental. I have had the chance to see his acting in previous films which has made me hooked ever since.
On another note, I did not read the book but after viewing the film, it made me want to run to the nearest Barnes and Nobles and purchase it and also look forward to buying the DVD when it hits the United States.
