Bread, Love and Dreams (Pane, Amore e Fantasia - 1953)

I named my blog after this Italian movie : Pane, Amore e Fantasia (in english Bread Love and Dreams) , a 1953 Italian romantic comedy film directed by Luigi Comencini with Gina Lollobrigida and the great Vittorio De Sica. At the 4th Berlin International Film Festival it won the Silver Bear award and in the 1954 was nominated for Best Foreign Language Film.

Marshall Antonio Carotenuto is sent to Sagliena, an imaginary little village in the center of Italy in the 50s, to assume his new mandate. In the village he knows Mariella (Frisky) AKAS ‘la Bersagliera’ secretly fallen in love for a policeman (Carabiniere) reporting to Antonio. But also Paolina, the village’s priest nephew, loves him. Things become more complicated when Annarella, the midwife, start demonstrating his love to Antonio. She is hiding a secret and the Marshall soon will be in a restless situation.

Highly Recommend !!! =)
