  A BOOKSHOP IN PARIS  
ILL MATERIALE EMOTIVO
Speaking of Italy, check out a charming trailer for their movie A BOOKSHOP IN PARIS which is currently out in their cinemas as the story of Vincenzo (Sergio Castellitto), a Paris bookseller dedicated to the search
Castellitto has also directed the movie
for rare volumes, a passion in line with his profession. His day is not only occupied by antiques books, but also by his paraplegic daughter, Albertine (Matilda De Angelis), whom he takes care of. Due to an accident, the young woman left the university and abandoned any form of social life, giving up friends. In addition, Albertine no longer speaks and her father tries to encourage her every day, conversing with her, despite the fact that the dialogue is unique. This sometimes monotonous and sometimes routine life of Vincenzo is upset by Yolande (Bérénice Bejo), a young woman who bursts into his life like a storm followed by a wonderful rainbow ...

  1. A bookshop in Paris sounds really romantic and fun.

  2. i always admired Fallacci and that has a Mad Men aura, but Paramount+? Another service, more money and just for one miniseries? I almost fell in that trap with AMC+ and Spy City . Thank Heavens, Amazon let me watch the first episode for free. Boring and awful, not worh just to subscribe for that.

    1. I know she was a war reporter in her later career, but I cannot remember how she covered the wars in my country, so I'm reserved about her. most of the war reporters are vile liars.

    2. I have read mendacious war coverage, so I’m with you about war correspondents. She was old and semi-retired when it came to the Balkan Conflicts. Her war dispatches came from the Middle Eastern wars and Vietnam. She was very controversial and contradictory, but her postures evolved throughout her life, so somewhere/sometime her ideas and mine met and coincided.

    3. I know she was not a fan of Hollywood stars so her talks with them were not servile like with others and this is what they will depict in the series.

  3. Paris is always known (like Venice) a romantic city. So i can tell Yes! "A Bookshop in Paris" .

  4. These both look great but Bookshop in Paris for the win. I bet the mystery woman is the person who gets the daughter to speak!

  5. A Bookshop in Paris is definitely one for me. I do hope she’s able to find her voice. Plus it looks like there Kent be some juicy scenes in this one!

    3. You need a bay window if you ever find a new house.

  6. No more Paris for me. The first and last time I was there in the mid-eighties a racist cop thought I looked suspicious. 16-year-old me was almost arrested. Thank God my teacher was there to help me out.
    I do love books, though.

    1. You do always look suspicious to me, Blue. If you ask me they should strip search you every time you enter your work place :)
