Light Of My Eyes (2001)
 (บรรยายอังกฤษ)

 

ควรค่าน่าดูตรงที่ :เป็นภาพยนตร์สุดโรแมนติตที่นักแสดงนำชายและหญิงแสดงได้อย่างยอดเยี่ยม โดยทั้งคู่คว้ารางวัลจากเทศกาลหนังเวนิซ Best Actor และ Best Actress มาครองซึ่งถือเป็นปรากฏการณ์เพราะนับตั้งแต่มีเทศกาลนี้จนถึงปัจจุบันยังไม่เคยมีผู้ได้รางวัลนำชายและนำหญิงยอดเยี่ยมที่มาจากหนังเรื่องเดียวกันมาก่อน อีกทั้งนอกจากสายการประกวดหลักทั้งคู่ยังสามารถได้รางวัลจากPasinetti Awardอีกด้วย รวมทั้งตัวหนังก็เข้าชิงสิงโตทองคำในปีนั้น

Storyline:
  
Antonio is a fallen angel, a rootless chauffeur in Rome, who relates only to the lonely heroes in the pulp science fiction novels he grew up with. Only through a chance encounter with Maria, a woman struggling to hold onto her daughter and her business, does he discover a hope that''s been lacking in his detached existence. Antonio is drawn into the suffering of Maria''s world, where she draws her inner strength from her fragile solitude. A haunting score, poetic atmosphere and award-winning lyrical performances by the two leads evoke the beauty of a precarious existence.

Review:
"Light of My Eyes is a poetic journey of love and personal struggle. A very well handled film that is a quirky and original romantic drama...the kind of romance film I wish there were more of."
– Nic Poague, Criticnic.com

"Imaginative! Handsomly shot and nicely played!"
– Time Out New York

"[An] eccentric and curious love story [with] marvelously complex layers. Enchanting, sad and gorgeously mysterious!"
– Jen Johans, Film Intuition
 

     
   
 

Light Of My Eyes (2001)

 

 

At once a fine character driven drama and an unconventional love story about two lonely people Light of My Eyes is considered part of the resurgence of quality Italian films.
 

     
   
 

Light Of My Eyes (2001)

 


Antonio (Luigi Lo Cascio) is a chauffeur driving the streets of Rome who has a friendly and composed mien making everyone around him feel at ease. Maria (Sandra Ceccarelli) is a somewhat stern 30-something single mother who although still attractive has begun to show her age and has developed stress lines in her brow. Together they make an unlikely couple; but not at first.
 

     
   
 

Light Of My Eyes (2001)

 


Antonio is introduced to Maria after he almost hits her daughter (Barbara Valente) who is errantly crossing the road one evening. Antonio takes a liking to both Maria and her daughter and he begins to hang out with them when he has free time.
 

     
   
 

Light Of My Eyes (2001)

 


Right from the beginning Antonio wants a serious relationship but Maria prefers just to sleep with him. In time, Antonio takes on the part of a guardian angel and begins to help Maria with financial difficulties. It turns out she owes money to a local crooked loan shark and so – unbeknownst to her – he begins to work for loan shark to help pay her debts. But in time the work is difficult plus he is over-worked, underpaid not to helping a man with illegal activity.
 

     
   
 

Light Of My Eyes (2001)

 


The film, directed by Giuseppe Piccioni, uses an interesting narration. Rather than the standard voice-over that tells us what the main character is thinking we hear Antonio reading various passages from one of his science fiction books, which (very obviously) line up with his own life. He is an outsider who observes the world he is in and in some ways he views himself like an alien from another world. Not literally, of course, but he does have a detached observant connection to everyone around him. This is way to signal to us that Antonio''s actions with Maria are a way to take him out of the stratosphere and give his life some meaning.
 

     
   
 

Light Of My Eyes (2001)

 


Maria is cold and indifferent to Antonio''s advances but she realizes that even though she may not be in love with him she misses him when he is not around. They are not a perfect couple but they manage to be useful to each other. In this way, the film has a realistic, rather than a Hollywood-like, touch.
 

     
   
 

Light Of My Eyes (2001)

 


The film is fairly laid back in all areas; the acting - while good - rarely goes over-the-top, the camera glides through scenes, the musical score has a syrupy new age element and the editing rhythms provide smooth transitions from scene to scene. But don''t let that hold you back because the film is very engaging too primarily because it uses many close-ups on the main characters so that the viewer can study their faces and try to figure out what they are thinking.
 

     
   
 

Light Of My Eyes (2001)

 


The film too has an otherworldly quality - that is not unlike some of the films of Kieslowski - in that it deals simultaneously with fate and chance in the real world.
 


Light of My Eyes is a good contemplative film about two lonely people who find each other by chance. The film won many awards in Italy but somehow no distributor picked it up. While it lacks the punch of some of the great foreign films of our time it is definitely an over-looked film and worth watching if you are interested.
