the small story
6 September 2019 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

The back set of 1963 "Cleopatra". Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton and Joseph Mankiewicz. Sofia and Luca. The last ones are the heroes of a small love story, beautiful, fragile and with sad end. In the shadow of the great "picture of love". Two moments are real memorable - the dance of Sam Irwin and the angel front of window and its special gift to Sofia. So, a small story as part of a great one. Like a butterfly brooch or the fur coat.
