Love that scene... ! The whole film, in fact, is genius. Mitico!

Simona Carini

You used the perfect adjective, Frank: mitico.


Alberto Sordi some dice Frank e' mitico! La canzone mi esce un pò dalle orecchie se devo essere sincera :o(

Simona Carini

Ciao Laura. La canzone rappresenta quello che dice, nel senso che le parole sono in napoletano, mentre la musica e' praticamente americana. Spero che la tua vacanza proceda bene.


This is such a fun post and is definitely a great intro to PPN!

Simona Carini

Thanks Joanne. I am glad you enjoyed it :)

Sarah Miller

Thank you for this wonderful description! I saw the video (I am fluent in Spanish and have limited knowledge of Italian) and thought more or less that is what was happening, but it's great to read the exact content! My favorite part is when he pours milk on the bread...

Simona Carini

I am glad my post was helpful, Sarah. This is really one of the great scenes in Italian cinema. I could watch it over and over again and never tire.
