|Olivia de Havilland shines as protective mother|
Watch a clip from the film:
Closing remarks'Light in the Piazza' is a beautiful film featuring breathtaking location shooting in 1960s Florence and Rome by cinematographer Otto Heller. A word of warning: watching this film will give you a burning desire to fly to Italy, and absorb the stunning beauty of Florence.
The cast is first class, with fantastic performances by de Havilland, Mimieux and Brazzi. American actor George Hamilton delivers an authentic Italian accent which even had my Nonna fooled (who asked me why she had never seen this Italian actor before). My one complaint is the film not resolving the sexual tension between de Havilland and Brazzi, leaving you guessing as to whether they are or are not having an affair.
