Light of My Eyes (Luce dei miei occhi) is an incredible film that focuses on quiet characters, emphasizing the subtle things in life. The film was written and directed by Giuseppe Piccioni - a masterful Italian filmmaker who has made a name for himself through movies like Best of Youth and Not of This World. Light of My Eyes contains a simple and straight-forward plot: Maria (Sandra Ceccarelli), full time mother and shop owner, fights to keep her business and family afloat during trying times. She grows sad and lonely in her humble ways. Her disposition changes somewhat when she coincidentally meets a driver named Antonio (Luigi Lo Cascio) who takes an immediate interest in her. It is not long before he is in love with Maria and paying off her debt. Where the film really excels is in its realistic and detailed portrayal of the daily lives of each character. There is not always something to learn in each action of every character - some scenes may only serve a purpose in a larger context. As a result, the film elicits a dream-like state when watched from beginning to end. Light of My Eyes premiered at the Venice Film Festival where it won several awards in 2001.moreless
