A wonderfully made film from Italy that won the Oscar for Best Foreign. Although, I'm stopping short in calling a deseving win since I haven't seen the other four films. The movie centers on a man name Jep Gambardella who called himself "the king of the high life" since he likes to party all the time. The film centers on Jep and the friends in his life. I love the background music score and I like the I love the looks of the movie by cinematographer Luca Bigazzi. I love some of the beautiful women of Italy, although they look older by age, but they still llok grogeous. One woman in the moman claims that she is 53, but to me she looks five to 10 years younger. My favorite scene in the movie is a little girl with a temperment throws paint against a white background in anger. I don't know what you people saw in theatres this week, but I happen to see two foreign language movies this week; "The Great Beauty" and "The Wind Rises." I did pretty good this week.
