It's Christmas time, I smell the snow perfume in the air... and a lot of pollution. But I cover it all with cinnamon! I love to prepare cinnamon raisin rolls. Well, I love to eat them all year long, but cinnamon smell is a bit Christmassy I think. Ok, I'm going off target.
My November movie marathon is dedicated to one of my favourite women in the World, the charming Monica Bellucci. I've always loved her bearing and her beauty. I don't think she's the best actress, but she always remains fixed in the mind after you watch a movie with her. Giuseppe Tornatore tried to highlight her sensual power in the 2000 movie
Ok, it's October and it's obviously the pumpkin month, the Halloween month, the falling leaves month... so I think that it is appropriate to dedicate the movie marathon to Halloween. Horror movies are not my favourite but I appreciate some of them. For example, I'm waiting for the exit of It in theatres.
A movie marathon about black and white movies is a must, if you don't like black and white, you don't like cinema. My opinion. But there is something so romantic and elegant in the black and white movies, even when they talk about a crime. It seems that they are set in a cocoon-like world.
I am literally melting. I have two blower fans ten centimeters from my face because I can't breath. It's too hot in these days in Italy: 40°C is too much also for a warm lover like me. So I thought, is the placebo effect valid also for the hot weather? If I see something very cold will I feel a bit better? I'm crazy, am I not?
July is ice cream month! It's a necessity with this hot weather and I'm a huge fan of the classical handcrafted tastes: hazelnut, pistachio ("If pistachio is great, the ice cream maker is great", that's my granny rule), chocolate and cream. But I also love some of those packaged ice creams and ice cream bars.
