A night to be entertained with a classic Italian Movie
Italian Title: Bello, Onesto, Emigrato Australia Sposerebbe Compaesana Illibata
English Title: A girl in Australia
Travel back in time with this delightful movie written by Rodolfo Sonego based on when he visited his sister living in a small Victorian town, who came to Australia from the southern Italian town of Bulleno. He decided to write a script telling of the Italian migrant’s life in Australia. Filmed in the early 1970s in Cairns and other tourist locations around the country, it stars Alberto Sordi who plays Amedeo, a poor Italian immigrant living in Australia for twenty years. Seeking to marry an Italian wife, he corresponds with Carmela (Claudia Cardinale), a pretty girl from Rome. They do not reveal their true identities and do not mention their hardships in their letters. Carmela is actually a prostitute seeking an opportunity to change her lifestyle. Amedeo, embarrassed about his looks, sends a photograph to Carmela of his handsome friend Giuseppe.
