Here’s something else I like, a real gem courtesy of my friend Laura Alderson. Go ahead and read Laura’s post about Don Camillo–if this sort of thing is for you, her post and the clip found there are enough to make you a fan. I’ve watched the first movie now, and it instantly climbed high up my list of all time favorites. I am a major sucker for stories set in rural villages.
Even higher on my list are Jean de Florette and its sequel Manon of the Spring, but only because the tale told there is weightier; with regard to setting, Don Camillo rings all the same bells for me, and rings them well.
