Bellissimo

My wife and I have loved watching My Brilliant Friend. It's intricate, blended with emotional depth and la verità about how life was like in southern Italy in the mid 1900s. As an Italian American, this show speaks to me in ways that are hard to explain, with the feelings of many characters resonating with the feelings within me; the struggles that our Italian ancestors faced in difficult times that paved a path for us and others who sought a better life to have the freedom and autonomy that we have today. While I can only speaks for myself, I believe that the strength and courage that we see in both Lila and Elena are in all of us...yet perhaps most close to home in those of us that descended from suffering and remember it in our blood. Grazie mille a tutti che hanno contribuito a creare questa serie brillante.
