Storyline

In Rome, Cora is a waitress at a club, walks people's dogs, sleeps with various men, kips with pals, and has a salty tongue. She also has a bruised history: her mother's suicide, her brother's mental illness. Ada, a dog-owning client, hires her to follow Ada's aged and courtly father every day. The dad, a retired philology professor, has a touch of dementia, sometimes forgetting where he is; Cora is to keep him in sight, phoning Ada if the professor has difficulties. On the third day, he takes a train out of Rome, and Cora follows on what proves to be a journey into her best and worst selves. She becomes his traveling companion, but what does he become to her?

i love this movie
5 February 2007 | by sstoSee all my reviews

i love this movie, i love watching it over and over and over again

all the characters are lovely, each has his own story and motives, and for each there is some time devoted in the movie to let us enter their life for a while

the story is very simple - everybody is on his way to somewhere, each pursuing his goals, driven by his emotions and we see how the life just passes by while we struggle to find our way through the fog and occasional rain, always alone...

the main character is a young girl who doesn't know what to do with her life. she feels only cold in her soul and doesn't believe that anybody can feel anything different for her, too. she stumbles upon a old, strange man, and following him on a trip changes the way she looks at life, makes her see things she never paid attention to, makes her feel warmth towards this complete stranger, something she never felt for a long time for anyone else in her lonely, cold life...

do watch this movie

watch it and fall in love with it

peace & love
