  • lou.'s rating of the film La pista

    'Pista' has a double meaning in Italian: the one here intended is 'dancing floor': I loved this tango! Reminded me of Chagall. The second one is 'lead' or 'track'. If you go regional and culinary, there's also a third meaning that refers to 'pista di maiale' which means literally a sausage product like 'salami'. Toccafondo made a 4 min. short inspired by a pig the very next year (1992). You should watch it too!
