Ristorante Paradiso 10
One of the best episodes of the series
This episode focused on Luciano. His wife died nine years ago, but he still keeps her in his heart and resists advances of other women. I think he is doing the right thing – I don’t think I would be able to marry again after loosing a wife. However, I didn’t like one of his phrases. What the hell is wrong with coming to a concern with another woman?! I guess it is understandable due to his old age (64) and upbringing. I do respect his loyalty to his wife though.
Claudio is also single, but his circumstances are different. It seems both him and his wife have difficulty expressing their feelings. His former wife is a lawyer and her room is painted with a cold palette. Claudio has a flashback about their parting and she confesses that she really appreciated his morning coffee. I wonder if they both were more open to each other their marriage would have survived…
Nicoletta also hesitates inviting Claudio to a concert, but she does commit a kind of a Freudian slip
Overall, the episode was very pleasant, especially due to well-painted backgrounds and very fitting music
