Other than the possibility of finding your footing back into the world through the presence of a whole other lost, immature and wandering soul, what else could be glimpsed through this movie before it could put you to sleep? Even setting it in Italy could be considered cheating because it looked beautiful regardless of the absence of any redeeming qualities in these one dimensional portrayals. Even those recordings of Grandma Eves' experiences during the war somehow reverberated a nagging thought that she should be in a different film altogether.
Well, at least they're all pretty (albeit they're pretty bored).
That much can be said.
