I am very lucky to have watched both "Scusa ma ti chiamo amore" and "Scusa ma ti voglio sposare" yesterday after they were released in 2008 and 2010 respectively. It is such a shame that I hadn't watched them earlier, especially the first one. I am trying to give a review for both, I watched the first yesterday, and was very glad Italy has very good quality in film making, such as this chick flick, and I couldn't wait to see this sequel. To remind you, I am not familiar with Italian, though I learned it some 20 years ago for few days after I had studied Espanol for 2 years at high school. So I always have to count on the subtitles, I hope they did a decent job for their translation so I could give a proper review and afterthought.
I recognized Rauol Bova from "Under the Tuscan Sun" who co-starred with Diane Lane, one of my fav actresses since she was very young, but it was my first time to see Michela Quattrociocch, who had a very charming aura from her look and caught my attention as she was such a bellisima from both releases, reminding me of the younger version of Sela Ward, the American actress famous for her roles in "The Fugituve" with Harrison Ford and "CSI:NY".
The movie series is all about unorthodox romance, and it centers on one that occurs between a blossomy teenager(17) and a mature and career-successful late 30-something. The discrepancy of age caused some confusion for the guy, but the girl shows such a passion for him, and not surprisingly they ended up being a couple with a happy ending, despite of many difficulties for them to deal with. This kind of issue reminds me of my situation: I used to have a crush on a girl 22 junior my age, but it turned out to be a middle-aged guy's fancy, so I indeed related to that kind of emotion when I watched the movies. Still, it is one of the beautiful things in the world, regardless of being not so realistic in reality.
I try not to spoil the fun for this very good romantic story, and I give both a rating of 8 for their being in my heart after the last second.
