    I watched a movie last night called Ciao. I'd never heard of it and only watched it because Netflix recommended it. It started off slow but the ending packs an emotional punch. Check it out if you get a chance - I highly recommend it.

    One thing I related to was that how, at least with certain things, I'm more willing to disclose personal details with people online than with, maybe the exception of my closest friends, people I know in "real life".

    Here is the trailer.

    I'd be all over this, if it was available on iTunes Canada or iTunes UK. Tabernac!!!

    For those who are interested in watching this film, I give you this link.

    It's one of my favourite movies because it has an wonderful interplay between two basic components: dialogue and flow. Some people may harp on the fact that it can be slow at times but I think it works to the movie's intensity.

    Thanks for the link. You are right - it is slow at times but that is part of its charm - it takes its time to develop the characters and lets you get to know who they are gradually. I loved how it didn't play into any of my expectations. I thought it was going to go in one direction but it went a completely different way that was really thought provoking.

    This does look VERY good and even though I watch a movie every 10 years or so, this one I would make a point to see.

    Thanks!!

    Cool movie. I enjoyed it, and Andrea (Alessandro Calza) is a hottie. Plus, he is gay.

    I watched this on netflix a while back, i'd imagine it's still there? (Instant)

    Great movie icon_smile.gif Slow at times but the cinematography is gorgeous throughout and the ending was very touching.

    Just watched this movie. I liked it. It really freaked me out because the main character, like me, is from Waco. When he tells Andrea that he's from Waco, Andrea says, "David Koresh". He replies, "Yeah. Our claim to fame. Don't forget Jennifer Love Hewitt.". I can't tell you how many times I've said those exact same words. Word for word. That's pretty much the standard conversation I have when I tell people where I'm from. That scene really tripped me out. Like the screenwriter's been listening to my conversations!
