  1. Una Giornata particolare (1977) - Ettore Scola

    The film is set during the late 1930s: the occasion is the first meeting between Mussolini and Hitler. Left alone in her tenement home when her fascist husband runs off to attend the historic event, Sophia Loren strikes up a friendship with her homosexual neighbor Mastroianni. As the day segues into night, Loren and Mastroianni develop a very special relationship that will radically alter both of their outlooks on life.--imdb.com

    Two of Italy's greatest stars, Sophia Loren & Marcello Mastroianni, are united in this special film about two very special people. The day is May 8, 1939, the day of a huge rally celebrating Hitler's visit to Rome. But this serves only as a background to the meeting of a world weary housewife, Sophia Loren, and her (...) TV announcer neighbor, Marcello Mastroianni. They meet, make love and change each others lives with anger, tenderness, comedy and self-searching. A remarkable film. --review via Amazon.com Una Giornata particolare (1977) - Ettore Scola [Amazon.com]
