Light of My Eyes ★★ Luce Dei Miei Occhi 2001

Chauffeur Antonio (Lo Cascio) is heading home when he nearly hits a young girl who's wandered into the street. When her mother, Maria (Ceccarelli), comes to rescue the child, Antonio is immediately attracted. He begins to hang around and worms his way into Maria's life but, frankly, it doesn't seem worth the effort. The characters talk a lot (without saying anything worth noting) and, besides Lo Cascio, they're not particularly interesting. Italian with subtitles. 114m/C DVD . IT Luigi Lo Cascio, Sandra Ceccarelli, Silvio Orlando; D: Giuseppe Piccioni; W: Giuseppe Piccioni, Umberto Contarello, Linda Ferri; C: Arnaldo Catinari; M: Ludovico Einaudi.
