The following movie is one I’ve recently re-seen. I remember that when I first saw this film I didn’t get it that well, probably because I was little. But this time, I absolutely loved it.
Starring Maggie Smith, the film tells us the story of this eccentric British woman, Emily Delahunty, who happens to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. The train she is on is bombed by terrorists. Luckily she survives and so, the moment she wakes up, she invites three of the survivors of the attack at her gorgeous villa in Umbria, which is situated in the middle of Italy. (I should definitely go there someday.)
From now on things center around one little girl, Aimee, who is one of the survivors. As newly orphan, she is taken care of by both Emily as well as the other two men who survived. Emily (Ms Smith) who has a troubled and full of drama past, gets really attached to this little girl and feels like she has a second chance to be the mom she had never been.
Although it has a lot of drama the movie’s idea is really lovely, especially for a dreamer kind (like me). I loved the ending’s last lines :
"I may be dead next month. The moon may have crashed into the Earth. Who knows what dreadful things may come to pass? But, at the moment, I am happy. What else matters?"
