Nights of Cabiria & The Umbrellas of Cherbourg


Here at ITBK there are differing opinions on whether or not these are appropriate Valentines Day recommendations---although we both agree that the reality of love is served up in a brutally beautiful way through Giuleietta Masina & Catherine Deneuve. In the The Umberellas of Cherbourg all the dialogue is sung, the colors are outrageous, the wardrobe is beautiful, the sets are incredible and its heartwrenching REALLY. Now onto the Nights of Cabiria...I love Giulietta Masina, I could watch her forever. Poor, sad Cabiria just keeps hoping for love; even in the face of utter betrayal she never loses faith. So we here at ITBK think instead of going for the regular love-fest fare maybe it's time to take a walk down the beautiful dark side of love...the one that's closer to the truth than anyone cares to admit. KISSES
