Pagan Sphinx Entertainment Highlight

Please somebody tell me they like Lina Wertmüller films! If you happen to be a film scholar just keep in mind that I'm not! This, folks, is my usual little ditty. I have the attention span of a mosquito when it comes to long dissertations.  Go easy on me!   All tongue and cheeky, of course! :-)

Anyway, I've seen the film from which this intro was taken - Pasqualino Settebellezze, a.k.a.
Seven Beauties. I've seen it several times over the years but it was only yesterday that I took the time to discover whose voice is performing the sort of spoken word song/poem in the intro. He is Italian singer songwriter, actor and comedian  Enzo Jannacci.  Oh, yeah.




Here is the English dub version. Being a natural speaker of Portuguese, I prefer the Italian version with English subtitles. If you accept the challenge to listen to both, please let me know which you like better.

  3. Thanks, Aguja - I have a thing for Italian movies.

    Linda, I know you have that problem. It's not really a very important post, after all. :-) I'm self-indulgent that way.

  6. Feeling a little Provincial here... although I can sing one verse of "Mittens Without Thumbs" in French...

    The only film I've seen by LW is Swept Away..., and you were there! :)

    I should probably try a little harder, and may indeed as I enter my period of Enforced Winter Dormancy.

"When the Amherst sphinx styled herself a pagan, she meant she didn’t believe in the biblical God. What sort of deity, if any, she did believe in is hard to pinpoint."
