The Italian


Watched The Italian with Mollie last night. It’s about a six-year-old orphan setting out to find his mother after an Italian couple has already decided to adopt him.

The boy’s performance was brilliant. I especially love the final shot.

The bitter Russian winter resonated well with the fear and loneliness in the boy’s heart.  But I’m happy the change of seasons from winter to spring eventually marked an ending that warmed both our hearts and the boy’s.
