LA SECONDA MOGLIE
THE SECOND WIFE

Maria Grazia Cucinotta, Lazar Ristovski, Giorgio Noe


The 2nd Wife

I bought this film several months ago then totally forgot about it. Rummaging through my collection for something to watch on a boring Thursday night, I decided to finally watch it. A simple story of a single mother who is the second wife of a widower. She moves in with him and his son from his previous marriage. She is tall and statuesque, the whole town gets mesmerized by her beauty. Yet she remains simple and loyal to her husband even when he is wrongfully jailed for a crime he didn't commit. During his incarceration, his teenage son falls for her but she resists his advances. Set in a small Italian rural town, where people still enjoy simple pleasures as well as spreading rumors and gossip about other people. A coming of age movie with some dramatic moments which resembles a typical Tagalog film. Except it is in Italian with English subtitles. Not that I really watch Tagalog movies. But you know what I mean. Or maybe not!
