A special day

Ettore Scola’s “A special day” is one of the most impressive films I have seen in recent times ( months, years ).
Set against Fascist Italy it deals with human solidarity and courage against totalitarian surroundings. The film is very slowly moving, beautifully shot and Sophia Loren and Marcello Mastroianni are in a league of their own. It is available in a pristine quality restoration ( Blue Ray edition ). Most highly recommended.
