| If at first you don't love it...
Obviously, I liked this film more than most. I found it touching and

well acted. And it had a realistic character who is quite frustrating

to watch, even with her therapist. I also felt her insecurity when the

charming Italian shows up. A chick flick? Believe it or not, men

sometimes feel insecure and threatened, too. Moreover, the

actors had a chance to really journey through an "arc", ending up at

a place different from where they began. That doesn't happen in

most films. Finally, if you see "Martha" and don't love it, I suggest

you watch it a second time, with your eyes closed. Listen to Paulo

Conti. He's incredible! If nothing else, the film introduced me to

his music, and that alone would be enough.
