Such a delight that in the midst of falling in love with it and its characters, I wept unabashadley while grinning like a fool.

Media reviewers seem to have missed the fact that it takes place during Advent, and is about the effect of a man of faith.

Dogma for beginners is more like it. Films shot on digital video are not known for its warmth and can sometimes be a test of viewer endurance. "Italian for Beginners" shocks you with its gentle humor and tenderness. That's not to say Dogma for beginners is more like it. Films shot on digital video are not known for its warmth and can sometimes be a test of viewer endurance. "Italian for Beginners" shocks you with its gentle humor and tenderness. That's not to say there isn't the requisite existential angst either, though. There's gobs. But this film is not unrelenting in its grimness like "The Celebration" or "Dancer in the Dark" were. Seeing these characters at Venice on vacation, and the physical Venice itself, through the digital video format make these Danes really look like tourists, and Venice, a tourist destination. There is a moment here, involving the Italian girl in love with an older man, that belongs in the canon of great romantic comedy moments. You may clap. It is so winning like so much of this amazing movie. Expand

Lone Scherfig makes you smile, laugh, cry and feel good after you watch this exquisite film.
