Malèna (2000)


Oh hello there I seem to have gone screen capping rampage again, please do humour me. I have wanted to see Malèna for quite sometime as it is set in the 1940s and has the hideous Monica Bellucci in playing the titular character, I mean she should wear a bag over her head. Any who the film centres on a young boy, Renato's unrequited love for the lonesome Malèna, she makes him realise what it is to truly love a woman. 

Malèna is ostracised from her community as all the women accuse her of being a vulgar whore  just because all their men want to get in her knickers, they presume she is the promiscuous sort. 

The film is very sweet and I loved the costumes in it, and Bellucci's performance is spot on, her eyes are so expressive that you feel for her so much. It is directed by Giuseppe Tornatore who also directed Cinema Paradiso which I have recently added to my lovefilm list (boyfriend's actually but might aswell be mine).








I have since purchased waving clips, I never knew they existed, this is why I love cinema you get entertained and figure out new ways to make your hair more appealing. 














Obviously I need this bow.











I didn't tell you I had a cameo, my bad. Have a bello weekend.

  4. You're excused for excessive screen shot use as these are all gorgeous!

    And I look forward to seeing the waving clips results too. You must share pictures, particularly if they're hilarious. You can document the learning process of trial and error!

  6. Haven't seen this one. It looks like there's a lot of attention to detail, which I like.

    I agree, you'll have to get some practice with the waving clips and show us the result! I totally agree that one of the main purposes of cinema is to make our hair better!
