One of the ways we are trying to get more practice with the Italian language is renting and watching Italian movies. We have seen three in the last few weeks, and not only did we have fun picking out some words that we knew, but we thoroughly enjoyed the movies. Uh, we also learned that we won’t be speaking and understanding any Italian locals for quite some time. *Sigh*
So, I would like to share those movies with you.
Add them to your Netflix queue or run out to your local video store to rent them. Or, if you want to add them to your DVD collection, click on the links below to purchase them through Amazon.
I loved all three movies. Each has it’s own unique message of love, of inspiration, of destiny. Each one can make you cry…but for very different reasons. I had seen Life is Beautiful before, but I can watch that movie over and over and fall in love with it again and again each time I see it. That one is certainly my favorite of all three. That Roberto Benigni is some genius! It is no wonder he and the film won the Academy Award some ten years ago.
Have you seen any of these movies? What did you think? Do you like any of them so much, that you had to own it? Do you have any other Italian movies that you’d recommend to me?
