In bianco e nero

In Life, Music, TV&Movies on March 31, 2007 by Pino

The movie-weekend continues…
I just watched the movie L’Ultimo Bacio by Gabriele Muccino and I was wondering whether all his movies have the same subject. People with their relationship’s problems, cheating, breakdowns, children, teens, and… and hysterical screams. I guess it’s an Italian trademark😉 My parents used to scream every evening because of business issues: for me it was just everyday life which I simply forgot when I relocated to Berlin.
In the movie also played Carmen Consoli (I didn’t recognize her) who sings the movie’s main theme named after the movie. I don’t like her records so much, but the song In Bianco e Nero is quite good because of the lyrics

Guardo una foto di mia madre
era felice, avrà avuto vent’anni
capelli raccolti in un foulard di seta
ed un’espressione svanita
Nitido scorcio degli anni sessanta
di una raggiante Catania
la scruto per filo e per segno e ritrovo
il mio stesso sguardo
E pensare a quante volte
l’ho sentita lontana
E pensare a quante volte…
Le avrei voluto parlare di me
chiederle almeno il perché
dei lunghi ed ostili silenzi
e di quella arbitraria indolenza
puntualmente mi dimostravo inflessibile
inaccessibile e fiera
intimamente agguerrita temendo
l’innata rivalità
