False Memory Syndrome

Wishful thinking to remember that Tino Orsini played my Italian husband in Genova 1960, set in the shadow of Mussolini’s rantings.

In fact, Tino reminds me that he played a hitman in a completely different film: Mercy, where I was not Italian, nor making pasta, not looking ever more demented but merely a determinedly sober-faced housekeeper.

I’d far rather we’d both starred in the frenetic Genova 1960 – and in my imagination, we did.
