Sentimental but not otherwise very engaging story of a love affair
This is a slow and sentimental mood piece, the story of a love affair between a man and a woman in Italy before World War II. The man we discover is married with a child. The woman has some secrets in her past. But they enjoy each other's company. If that does not sound like a lot of plot, there is a little more to the film but not much. This is not the kind of film where the viewer can expect a lot to happen. This is a film for people who enjoy seeing attractive lovers together and who like to listen to the romantic strains of an orchestral score with a lot of stringed instruments. It is a sad BRIEF ENCOUNTER sort of film except that the encounter is not really brief.
