A Beautiful film
The Italian film, the Best Man, is very well acted and believable about the Bride who falls in love with her husband's brother who is older and an American success. I found the movie to be well-paced and well-acted and believable. I enjoyed this film very much and do recommend it as a change from other films. Maybe it's because I have been fascinated by the beauty of Italy and the Italian language all of a sudden. I love Italian movies including this one. It shows another time in Italian life where family and tradition was still important including having a large family. That's all changed in contemporary Italy, people still get married and maybe live together without raising an eyebrow. They have smaller families maybe just one child much less two or more as it has even in New Jersey. Families are smaller and everybody is so involved in themselves. It doesn't help that the long working days in the rural fields have been replaced by a cubicle and an office. But that's what I miss about the old world of Italy, it's charm and eternalness.
