enchanting take on Cinderella story

My favorite Sophia Loren film, sprinkled with occasional medieval magic and fantasy. I think the best of various modern takes on the classic Cinderella fairy tale. Sophia and Omar were never more handsome and sexy than in this one. But, I can't believe that two such proud and strong-willed people could last long as a pair. Yes, they would respect each other for these qualities, but there would be frequent incidents that would bring out their temper and stubbornness and make for a very volatile relationship, similar to what we saw in the film....Famous Mexican actress Dolores Del Rio, now in her 60s, is the queen mother, in one of her last film roles. Unfortunately, I could not find a commercial source of this film on the internet at present, although I previously obtained a DVD copy.

give me my seventh dumpling

Rodrigo Fernandez (Omar Sharif) is an arrogant Spanish prince occupying 17th century Italy. His mother wants him to choose from amongst seven princesses but he rather breaks horses. A flying priest gives him some flour and challenges him to eat seven dumplings. He encounters head-strong peasant Isabella Candeloro (Sophia Loren) and is intrigued by her. He gives her the flour but she only gives him back six dumplings.

I don't always like Rodrigo. Omar Sharif has plenty enough charm to play the selfish prince with some heart. The problem seeps in when the character has an angry streak and he sneaks in some brutal undeserved violence. I don't always like Rodrigo. This is a spaghetti fairy tale. I like the seven motif. I like the attempted fantasy. The chicks are adorable. I do want to know what happened to the seventh dumpling. It would be funny to have her steal it for herself. Did she run out of flour? It would be nice to know for sure. This would be a much nicer Cinderella-like story if the prince isn't so mean.

Sophia never so beautiful!

When our romantic charming Prince (Omar Sharif) puts his eyes on our delicious merry heroine Isabella (Sophia Loren), he thought about the amusing dish-washing contest and decided to make her part in the competition for the would-be royal brides...

Isabella, the peasant girl, could be the fastest in the field... For her, washing dishes without breaking anyone, is very easy...

But our Cinderella fails... and is eliminated from the contest for breaking too many dishes..

Taken by surprise, the Prince is astonished and deceived... Isabella, humiliated and with all her dreams dispersed, runs away, all sad...

Brother Joseph De Copertino (Leslie French) comes to her rescue and reveals to her that she was cheated...

Feeling blessed and lucky, Isabella returns to the palace to demonstrate to her Prince that she was tricked...

If you need a sumptuous look to a fairy story, starting off as 'Once upon a time...' and you want to see pretty girls, witches and flying monks, plus a glamorous Sophia hidden in a barrel... Well, don't hesitate to see "More Than A Miracle"!
