Editorial Reviews

rodrigo, un principe spagnolo restio a sposarsi, incontra casualmente una bella e fiera contadina, isabella, da cui si fa preparare sette gnocchi. poco prima, infatti, fra' giuseppe da copertino aveva consigliato al principe di sposare la ragazza che gli avesse preparato e fatto mangiare sette gnocchi. ma isabella ne mangia uno e la profezia del frate non si avvera immediatamente. passera' un po' di tempo, durante il quale isabella, fatta rinchiudere per punizione in una botte, riuscira' a fuggire e a introdursi nella reggia come sguattera. qui rodrigo finalmente la ritrova, e, posto dal volere regale di fronte alla necessita' di scegliere entro otto giorni la sua sposa fra le sette principesse delle sette province del reame, s'illude di cavarsela imponendo per prova l'abilita' delle damigelle nel lavare mucchi di piatti senza romperli, sicuro che la contadinella battera' le smorfiose e inesperte principesse. ma un raggiro manda a monte il disegno di rodrigo ed e' proprio isabella a rompere piu' piatti di tutte. ma isabella riuscira' a smascherare il trucco messo in atto da una delle principesse e a sposare il principe rodrigo.

Format: DVD
So this is the movie that taught me that to stymie a witch you put her in a barrel. And that's good to know. 1967's MORE THAN A MIRACLE (released in Italy as "C'era una volta") was well-received domestically but failed to find an audience internationally. And while I enjoyed watching it, I could see where viewers may be left scratching their heads. Set in 17th century Italy, MORE THAN A MIRACLE is a somewhat bizarre, somewhat surreal, absolutely fractured Neapolitan fairy tale. It's strong on whimsy and farce, and for sure a peculiar imagination was in play behind the scenes.

I knew Sophia Loren was, like, va-va-boom. But I wasn't aware that Omar Sharif, back in the day, was actually a good-looking dude. Sharif plays Rodrigo, an arrogant Spanish prince who prefers taming wild horses to settling down to a dull marriage. Except that seven beautiful princesses have come to the castle, and Rodrigo is being pushed to pick one for a wife. In a tiff, Rodrigo storms out on his unruly stallion and, out in the countryside, is thrown off his saddle. He wanders into a monastery and chances upon a flying monk who informs him "The woman you love will have an impossible character - just like yours." Rodrigo protests that he doesn't want to marry and that he does what he wants, all the time. In lieu of useful advice on matrimony, the monk gives the prince a sack of flour and instructs him to have someone bake him seven dumplings when he gets hungry. The monk challenges Rodrigo to eat all seven dumplings, a challenge Rodrigo sneers at. Still, you can feel the fairy tale mechanics being set into motion.

Some time later, the prince espies his horse in the care of Isabella (Loren), a spirited peasant girl picking turnips in the fields.

I love this movie because of all the magic and passion that the 2 of them could not hide. Sophia Lorens eyes and her close ups where just beautiful
