The quote is from the movie La vita e bella (Life is beautiful). 🙂 I hope you all have heard about this masterpiece in film history. If you haven’t, wow, you really should check it out.
Daily Prompt asked me about a quote from my favorite movie and although I don’t just find one movie worth the title, this one immediately came into my mind. It is amazing, beautiful, funny, it makes you laugh and cry and everything in between…
The movie has so many incredible quotes but the thing I remembered first was this one. This scene is when Guido is trying to impress Dora by asking Mary (the catholic mother of Jesus) to throw the key of hers (Dora’s) heart. Guido of course knows that at that spot in the building above lives certain Maria who throws the key to her husband (or son) when he comes back home and yells; “Maria, la chiave!” The look on Dora’s face is priceless. 😀
Guido: “So, you were saying… The key that always makes you say yes has to come from heaven?”
Guido: “I’ll give it a try… If the Virgin Mary tosses it down to me, you never know. Mary, the key!!”
*the key drops*
I have not forgotten that I have been kindly given two awards. 🙂 From Lauren from laurensaysitall and Yinglan from hiddenstarsfiction. Thank you girls! ❤ i don’t follow the rules, but it still means a lot to me. You are now on my Award list.

Italian sounds so beautiful!
I agree with you! That is why I was studying it but now I have forgotten I am hoping that something is still left and I kept my books to get back to studying it… I really want to be fluent 🙂
