I haven't seen Letters to Juliet yet, but it's true that, even for a non-sentimental like me, Redgrave's relationship with Franco Nero is quite touching. Even more because, honestly, from the beginning these two didn't seem to have anything in common, except maybe their politics - but Nero's communism was more a question of roots (he was born in Italy's most famously "red" area) and social backgound: he was communist like so many other factory workers in Italy are; unlike him, Redgrave came from an intellectual family and from a country where, frankly, being communist was close to heresy. So yes, they were, and are, both on the far left, but for completely different reasons. And what else? She was British, extremely talented, sophisticated, more charismatic than beautiful; he was Latin, not extremely expressive (though time and experience have made him a good actor today), intelligent but in an instinctive, almost rough way, and very, very handsome. An interesting couple and an interesting story.
