I write to tell stories

The Amazon series – Person of Interest – by David Semel.

Of all the TV series I’ve seen, this is the most brilliant, ingenious.

And from the moment I look at it, I can no longer look at a cell phone or a video camera… without having the anxiety of being spied on by Big Brother. 🤣



The Amazon series – Vikings – by Michael Hirst.

A masterful narrative, I immediately loved this TV series, with attention to detail, ruthless and raw in the fight and revenge scenes.

The scene is fantastic, I remember a scene of dialogue between the lone protagonist and the old man of the famous Sergio Leone film.
I also appreciated the Chanson de Roland memory with its French character of the same name.

The emotional depth of the characters is the fire that feeds this television series.

I still have many seasons to watch, but so far I have to admit that the director’s prowess is sublime.





The Movie – The Graduate (1967) – by Mike Nichols.

Having achieved certain goals in life it is easy to fall into apnea in a sea of boredom and uncertainty, because one does not know what to do with one’s future.
Braiding a love affair, and becoming the lover of an older and married person, may seem like a good way to spend time and stay suspended.
Living as existential divers, with the oxygen tank on your back, slowing down in physical and thought movements, due to the water of the silent pool that was chosen: idleness.
True love is an existential storm that rips the diving suit and does not ask for permission to do so.


The Movie – The good, the ugly, the bad – by Sergio Leone.

The sublime beauty of the narrative of the journey of life as a feverish hunt for gold, on an impervious and intricate pathway of obstacles.
The sublime beauty of the narrative of human alliances and individual and popular wars.
The sublime beauty of Sergio Leone’s cinematographic narration of the Western.


The Movie – A Fistful of Dollars Official Trailer – by Sergio Leone.

The shots created by Sergio Leone have the gift of the word uttered in silence.
A sublime, magical director: he knows how to transform every image into living emotion, because he has the extraordinary ability to weave words, images and music together to coordinate everything a perfect dialogue.


The Movie – Breathless (À bout de souffle – 1960) – by Jean-Luc Godard.

Watching this film is like being scratched by the director’s narrative eye.
The rhythm of the film is equivalent to being pulled by the collar of a shirt by a neurotic friend who, while walking beside us, with sudden jolts, demands our attention to his problems.


The Movie – For a few dollars more (Per qualche dollaro in più) – by Sergio Leone.

The dollar generates stories that are intertwined with revenge and madness.
Sergio Leone’s characters are fabulously real in their rough human weaknesses.


The Movie – But my love does not die! (Ma l’amor mio non muore! – 1913) – by Mario Caserini.

This is one of those films in which the acting of the actors (in this case Lyda Borelli), thanks to their excellence, give life to history.


The Movie – Cabiria (1914) – by Giovanni Pastrone.

The beauty and passion of storytelling.


The Movie – Paisà – by Roberto Rossellini.

The beauty of the narration of real life, in its bare simplicity
