It's indeed a beautiful film isn't it Connie. It was so heart wrenchingly painful and sad at the end and it was all the more so because it was so subtly carried out. One of the most memorable films I have ever seen.
Have you ever seen il Postino, the postman? Another Italian film which made its name internationally in the 90's. The setting is different but it has very similar feeling and charm, so discreetly funny, poignant and romantic all at the same time without becoming ever over the top. If you haven't had a chance, I highly recommend it
