One way of preparing for another visit to Italy is by watching one of those classic movies for the umpteenth time and trying to follow the dialogue without looking too much at the subtitles. “Il Postino” is one of the big movies.

Revisiting movies part 107.22.09

From time to time I have to revisit some movies just to make sure I don’t forget them. Hah! So just recently I revisited the Wim Wenders’ movie “Don’t Come Knocking”. One of the best road-movies ever. Such a good story delivered in a beautiful way. And the way the movie is shot, the scenes in themselves, might make you miss the story: they are so stunningly lovely. The scenes comment directly onto the story. So it is a true sad-happy scene which wraps up this sad-happy road-movie. A road-sign telling us that “Divide” is only 1 mile away, and that “Wisdom” is so much further away in the distance. 52 miles.

Don't come knocking

Haven’t seen the movie yet? Buy it.

  • the tuscan cat
    I for one believe that Leonardo (da Vinci) was really smart. And I also believe cats are smart creatures. So when I spotted a nice cat sleeping on a scooter carrying "the signature" Leonardo somewhere in beautiful Italy I just had to "shoot".
