Quotes

Cesira: Morning, Uncle. Sleep well?
Padre di Agnese: You take my paper?
Cesira: Which one?
Padre di Agnese: "The Messenger".
Cesira: No.
Padre di Agnese: As soon as it arrives, it disappears. It's my paper. You're not allowed to touch it! Papers mustn't be read by women who can't understand!
Zia Tina: The paper's in here! Already screaming this early, eh?
Padre di Agnese: I'll scream when I like! This is my house! I paid and furnished it! And I want to scream!
Zia Tina: Scream out there! This is the kitchen! And only I can scream in it!

Engaging movie with a great cast of characters. Kept me guessing about whether Cesira would find love or not.
