Vita coi figli (1990)

As someone who has never been fond of foreign films that force the viewer to read subtitles, this was one of those occasions where subtitles would have been fondly welcome.  As I delve into the filmography of Monica Bellucci I'm learning to prepare myself for an onslaught of foreign films, many (such as this two part TV mini-series) not available with English dubbing or subtitles.  It's an interesting experience watching a film without knowing exactly what any of the characters are saying, having to decipher the film's plot through the characters facial expressions, tones and mannerisms.  It also forces you to pay close attention to what's going on, because every detail can lend some information as to exactly what's going on.  Obviously the level of possible enjoyment is slightly diminished in such a situation, but oddly enough sitting through about a three hour mini-series in Italian, without translation, turned out to be not as bad as I imagined it would be.
