I loved this movie. Came across this post while checking my reader this morning. If only I had more time to spend on the internet,,,theres’s so much great stuff out there. Anyway, I digress. If you love Italy, or want to learn to speak Italian, ( I Do!) watch this movie.
And check out the website for the language/cooking school, Cork Italian Language and Cooking School. It’s run by two hot Italian men, (had to say it.) If I was in Cork, I’d be taking lessons from Fabio and Claudio. Seriously, the school looks really interesting and from the look of the website they have a sense of humor. I like the combination of cooking and learning a language, after all food and language are two of the most important elements of any culture. Besides, anyone who likes Italian for Beginners is ok with me.
There is a movie that every motivated student should consider watching.
It’s a Danish independent production that is talking about the personal changes happening when an italian course for beginners is making the characters aware of a new dimension in life.

i loved this movie too! I get snagged by every film that has anything to do with italy. and I bet you are a “Zen” fan, with Rome as your favorite city
I did enjoy Zen. Haven’t seen any of the new episodes though. Just watched another great Italian film, L’Ultimo Bacio. Highly recommend. Great way to learn Italian too, watching movies with subtitles.
what is the one with Marisa Tomei and R. Downey Jr.????
Don’t know that one.
Grazie! your comment about us are fabulous and glamourous! any chance you will tour in Ireland?
You know a foreign lady that speaks and dress italian is such an irresistible person (in our opinion)! so what part of Italy are you more connected to?
Mi Piace Roma! ma, vorrei sapere piu come l’Italia. I hope I got that right?
“what is the one with Marisa Tomei and R. Downey Jr.????”
It’s called “Only You”….set in my favourite Italian location (and I have travelled over the whole boot!), namely, the Amalfi Coast and mainly in Positano.
I don’t think I’ve seen that one? But now I must! I haven’t been to Positano in a long time. I’m overdue! I agree it’s a beautiful spot.
