As it is now autumn, it seems funny to watch a movie called Summertime. I’m glad I did. The movie is a middle-aged woman’s fantasy. It includes a vacation to gorgeous Venice, meeting a handsome Italian, and love blossomimg in the Venetian night air.
The movie stars Katherine Hepburn as the spinsterish tourist. Rossani Brazzi is her lover. David Lean directs this propaganda film for Venice, Italy. It’s beautiful to watch, with scenery galore.
A trip to Italy one future summer would definitely be on my fantasy list. If a handsome Italian lover showed up, I wouldn’t complain.
