'amore', sometimes known as 'l'amore', is a film made up of 2 short films. they star anna magnani, who i've mentioned here before as the greatest actress ever. the first short is written and directed by jean cocteau and is called 'the human voice.' anna plays an ugly woman, alone in her tiny apartment, on the phone with her boyfriend who is dumping her and moving away. the entire film is her, in her apartment, on the phone. she gives the most moving performance i have ever seen on screen. acting doesn't get more powerful than this, and if you have a heart, you will cry when you see this movie. i hope some of you, or at least one of you, will rent it.
