Giuseppina Part 2.
This short film counts amongst my all time favourites.
Giuseppina is a young girl who wants her father to take her to the fair. He doesn't have the time, and tries to convince his daughter that all of life can be seen by just looking around her, at his petrol station.
Unfortunately on YouTube it comes in three separate parts, and I am showing No 2. If you enjoy it, you could always go to YouTube, and look at the other two.
It was made in 1959 as a film for TV colour testing. I think I must have first seen it at that time.
I've chosen Part 2 as it contains some 'amusing' English tourists in their Morris Traveller.
Have a look, and see what you think. No 3 is worth watching too.

The difference between an optimist and a pessimist, is that the optimist enjoys himself whilst waiting for the inevitable! I AM that optimist!
This is a daily, optimistic, 'photos and comments' blog. I make no judgements (only occasionally), just notes. If you wish to comment in any way at all, please feel free. Everything and everyone (except the obdurate and dictatorial) is very welcome.
I was born just south of London, but for the past 46 years I've lived in S W France. I am a painter by profession, and writer by desire. Lady Magnon and I live in an ancient cottage, in a tiny village, in perfectly tranquil countryside. We have a vegetable garden called 'Haddock's' (this may crop up from time to time), plenty of fruit trees, and a view that takes the breath away; we also have a Border Collie called Billy. I try to treat our planet with respect, and encourage others to do likewise (without preaching).
Contentment is a glass of red, a plate of charcuterie, and a slice of good country bread. Perfect!
