A Tribute to Mr. Franco Zeffirelli


6 Jan 2007
I really think this rates to be placed above the chit-chat level, so I placed it here. The fella did good work. A professional in his field, for sure.

A great line from the following film, which I finally was able to track down on YouTube.

The great line was/is:

"There are no illegitimate children in this world; only illegitimate parents."

Tea with Mussolini -- ムッソリーニトオチャヲ (字幕版)

A quote from the review:

Semi-autobiographical tale from the early life of director Franco Zeffirelli looks at the illegitimate son of an Italian businessman.

And it seems it isn't easy to watch this if you are in the United States. I write 'not easy' because I suspect there are ways to do it, if you are clever. Or you have a clever friend.

And I suppose I should place a link to BBC's tribute:
