At the beginning of the century, in Italy, a wealthy woman Francesca (Loren), adopts a poor little girl named Nunziata. The years pass, Nunziata falls in love Federico (Bova), her adoptive brother, son of Francesca.
a wonderful choice for Sophia Loren admirers. and interesting support for the viewers of her movies. a beautiful film who impose more than biographic details a special atmosphere.it is not a portrait. only an adaptation for a book about a long and admirable fight, a way in which Sophia Loren impose a powerful and fascinating character - her mother. this fact makes the film different because it represents a touching testimony. a nice surprise is Margareth Made performance. because, using old invincible manner to construct her roles, Sophia Loren - meridional force, strong, convincing, almost pathetic - dominates each scene and the young actress is a good, sure not the best partner. it is not a spectacular film but it could be a nice travel to origins of a really myth. a film like a chain of memories. not extraordinary but more than nice.
