- I really like my land.

- Your land?

It is as if it was mine,

I grew up there.

- Do you miss it'?

- A little.

I don't want to hurt you,

people must love a land.

- I don't know how to say it.

- Don't worry.

I've an idea, next time I

go home, you come along.

- What do you say'? I can't.

- Why not'?

My mother-in-law

can't be left alone.

- Then there's Giacomo.

- No, don't think about it.

A signora shouldn't do those things...

What do you call it'?

- Change the sheets?

- Can't you put her in a hospital?

- No, I can't.

- Yes you can.

It's not good to be

locked in the house.


- Mom is inside.

- Mom, Angela is back!

Let me go!

- I wanna play too!

- Please! Stop it!

Come on, children, play outside.

Out you go!

Apologies, signora.

I don't know if she can do it.

Have you never tried?

Please. I'm too curious, dear!

Let her do it alone,

don't bother.

- The chestnuts are ready.

- Hurray! Great!

Don't burn yourself, there

are enough for everyone.

Here you are.

Come on, quick!

- You don't drink, signora'?

- It is very good, home-made.

- Why don't you drink?

- I've been drinking.

But I don't tolerate so much.

- Admit that she's sympathetic.

- She is beautiful.

Yes, you're lucky.

She's a great signora.

Beautiful, isn't she?

Children, out, in the yard.

Enough now!

- What's your name?

- Reply to the signora.

Do you like children'?

How many do you have?

- I'm sorry about earlier.

- It's nothing.

Don't get upset about it.

You heard what my mother said?

You'll have beautiful children.

Don't give up hope.

Do you believe

what your mother says?

Why not'? She's very good.

Many people ask her advice.

They come from far away.

- This talisman will help?

- Sure.

You must keep it close

to your heart, every night.
