I finally saw most (I turned it off) of THE LAST KISS, the remake of the Italian film L'ULTIMO BACIO. Let me go on the record and say Zach Braff is no Stefano Accorsi. I don't know why this remake was done. There are cultural differences that did not translate at all.
Anyway, an adaptation should be able to stand alone from the source material. This did not. I really disliked this movie. I could not get into these selfish characters at all. Can someone please explain why Zach Braff is in movies? I liked GARDEN STATE but Mr. Braff should stick to sitcoms. He is not a leading man.
Here is the Spanish trailer for the original version. It had the clearest picture.
I have good-bye lunches and dinners every day until I leave on Monday. The other night I went out with three friends. We all worked at one of the most dysfunctional companies ever. We were cracking up as we talked about some of the crazy things that went on in that office. I was exhausted and they were stayed at the restaurant to keep talking. As I hugged the three of them good-bye I felt the tears coming. I received an email from them saying it was best that I didn't come back to the table or we all would have started crying.
My three friends from Italian class gave me cards filled with euros. One friend didn't get a chance to exchange the money so she gave me the amount in dollars. Since the dollar kept dropping she said she had to keep adding money to the card. Ha.
The co-host of the big good-bye party took me to lunch yesterday and gave me stationary (which I so needed because the movers packed mine) and this great walking guide book to Rome. There are fifty cards so you just take out what you want for the day. One of my former co-workers took me to Jar for dinner last night...amazing food.
I don't believe this time next week I will be in Rome. It does not seem real to me at all. Maybe once I land at Leonardo da Vinci (Fiumicino) Airport it will.
