Cute Movie Alert: 'Marcello Marcello'

Summer's a slow season for blogging, especially when your computer's on the blink. However, I had to squeeze in a post about a lovely little Italian movie we watched this week, 'Marcello Marcello'. In this movie, even when you think you know what's going to happen, you're still not quite sure how it will happen!
Both the husband and I loved it, and the music is pretty fab as well. But you really can't compete with a great storyline set on a little Italian island in the 1950's. Honestly, the 1950's in Italy always looks so picturesque!

Aside from the gorgeous scenery (the blue of that water!) and cute set design, the story of a poor fisherman's son trying to win a date with the mayor's daughter is totally endearing. The threads of redemption and reconciliation that are woven into the love story beef it up and make the movie more than a cliche.
If you're looking for something fun to watch that's a little different from the norm, check out 'Marcello Marcello'. What about you? What movies have you been loving lately?

Thanks for the recommendation! I've been trying to add to my list of movies to watch during husband business trips. (How did you find a man who will watch movies in Italian?!) We've been plowing through TV shows we missed lately, so I don't have any movies to suggest (but I'm hoping to borrow ideas from your other readers)!

Love this post. Always looking for good movies..did you find it online with subtitles? Can you share source? We watched this French movie (from iTunes) with Audrey Tatou last night that was pretty cute...called Priceless.
Just refreshingly charming..unlike a lot of the sh!t that comes out these days! I need to post your interview!

Hey guys - it was actually dubbed in German, with German subtitles =) So I didn't have to beg the husband to watch it w/me =)

@Carolyn - we were old skool and rented a DVD. The upswing is that it's dubbed in German b/c they seem to dub everything, the downside is there are no English subtitles...gotta practice the Deutsch! (and yeah, really want to upgrade to doing the movie online thing, but we're lame like that and haven't spent the time to figure it out, ha)
