Italy-Italia Life Sketching

La bella macchina . . .


Does anybody remember a film called something like ‘La bella Macchina’ about an Italian family in London and the story of their coffee machine?

You sir, happened upon my blog back in the Dark Ages (Read, after a most horrendous love gone wrong story) And then you stuck around. You’re a keeper.
PS- If ‘keeper’ is soccer lingo, I hope it means something good, cause in America? It means something good.

Oh yes, I’m still here.and thank you for your kind words! Though your subject matter is sometimes incomprehensible to me, I like the way you write with conviction and an intelligent edge! Keep doing it! And I’ll ‘keep on keeping on’ as Curtis Mayfield put it! 🙂

“Queen of Hearts” 1989
I remember it as a fairly charming but unremarkable film. “La Bella macchina” was the most memorable element in the film.

Joseph you are a hero! I’ve been trying to trace this film for years. Do they actually refer to it as ‘la bella macchina’? Or am I just remembering it with ‘Italian rose-tinted’ glasses?

E Buon Anno!

Any thoughts?
