just watched a lovely film with Sophia Loren as an old woman - very moving. The Days Ahead, on Netflix.

Sophie Loren is an old woman.

She looks great though.

Thanks! Need some more stuff to watch!

takes a lot of courage I think, for someone who has been admired all her life for her stunning looks, to agree to do a film where she is clearly old and not glamorous- playing the rôle of a poor woman, an escapee from a concentration camp.

I think her son was involved in the making of this. It's very much like her childhood apparently.

Just watched it. Lovely heartwarming film.

Thanks, biba

Glad you enjoyed it. She agreed not to be glammed up, she is still a very good looking woman and could have refused to be seen as in the film. Yes, very moving.

I watched the trailer and it looks like a good movie. Will add it to my list to watch.

I have always thought Sophia Loren a beautiful woman. I applaud someone like her who has embraced growing old naturally. Plastic surgeons haven't made a fortune out of her.

I watched this last night and thought it was very good, the young boy who played Mo Mo stole every scene he was in. I noticed at the end that it was directed by somebody with the surname Ponti and since she was married to Carlo Ponti I wondered if it is her son and it is.

We watched some of this film but turned it off, thought it was dreary and the dubbing was poor.

A friend recommended this during the week and I keep meaning to watch it, but life keeps getting in the way wink. I must get round to it soon.

Thanks biba. I love Sophia and have made a note to watch it.

Without being bitchy Sarnia, Sophia Loren did have a lot of cosmetic surgery.
She’s one of my favourite film stars, a one off and stars today don’t seem to compare.
