Maria Grazia Nazzari made her debut in Dark Eyes (1987), a romantic comedy that takes place on a ship, starring Marcello Mastroianni. But it wasn’t until A Whole Life Ahead (2008), another comedy from Italy, that our girl get sexy. Some take time and others are hot to trot from the get-go. A woman like Maria is always worth waiting for. Say her name loudly and there’s music playing, say it soft and it’s almost like masturbating. This movie finds our girl in a plot that features a brilliant grad student who struggles to find work. It’s the last movie Maria made, and we’re struggling to squeeze out the most from it.
