Black Sea

92 minutes

A Romanian immigrant in Italy is hired as live-in helper to a rude, curmudgeonly Florence widow, but slowly they become friends. Amiable melodrama that doesn't really know where it wants to go but provides some good moments during the trip, mainly due to the excellent acting.
