I Can’t Believe You’re So Catholic

Telephones are part of everyone’s life: they can be considered symbols of the evolution of communication potentialities. Personally I couldn’t live without my mobile phone. My husband often pokes fun of me saying I don’t use my iPhone for what it actually is but as a mini-laptop and I think he’s right. I use it all the time but I rarely make phone calls with it, probably because I hate phones per se. On the other hand, I like them as decorative objects and I’m planning to get an old rotary dial telephone, which is part of my childhood memories.

This is not the first movie guessing game about telephones, but I published the last one on December 2011, so it’s surely time to bring it back.

As for the rest, focus on details and I’m pretty sure you can guess them, too. As usual, check back next Monday for my clues and next Tuesday for the solution and the name of the winner. I hope you’ll enjoy it! ♥ xoxo

telephone_fgg_solutionHere we go with the solution. It was that easy, in my opinion, because guessing a movie from a detail like a telephone is really hard (I’m referring to the screencaps with no actor in them, in particular). In any case, we have a winner: Alessandro guessed 6 pictures right! He’s followed by Vale, who guessed 4 right, and by Beatrina, who guessed 2 right. Thanks everybody for taking some time to analyze the pics and write your guesses down. As I’ve written above, there will be no guessing game this week, but I’ll see you next week with the last FGG before the summer break. Until then, xoxo ♥

  1. 1. Casanova ’70 (Mario Monicelli, 1965)
    3. Repulsion (Roman Polanski, 1965)
    6. Behind the Candelabra (Steven Soderbergh, 2013)
    9. BUtterfield 8 (Daniel Mann, 1960)

    1. 2. Charade (Stanley Donen, 1963)… avrei dovuto riconoscerlo subito un film che ho sempre amato tanto!!!

      8. Ammetto che ero del tutto fuori strada sul genere e di essermi concentrato sul decennio precedente, ma l’indizio mi ha subito fatto venire in mente almeno tre commedie americane degli anni ’50 rifatte nei ’90. Father of the Bride è da escludere e se non è Sabrina (nonostante il telefono da cui lei chiama Linus nella cabina del Larrabee Building, per quel che si vede, sembri piuttosto simile a questo), deve essere Born Yesterday (1950) di George Cukor! 😉

  2. Ecco gli aiuti!
    1. Film italiano anni ’60. Grande regista, ottimi interpreti. Se avete riconosciuto lei, il gioco è fatto.
    2. Film USA anni ’60. Sembra opera di Hitchcock ma non è.
    3. Film UK anni ’60. Thriller psicologico di un certo livello.
    4. Film francese del decennio scorso che propone un intricato menage amoroso.
    5. Film USA recente, produzione indipendente. Molto bello e molto intenso.
    6. Altra produzione USA recente, accolta con entusiasmo dalla critica. Si tratta di un biopic.
    7. Film USA anni ’50. Una commedia che vanta un rifacimento negli anni ’90.
    8. Film USA del decennio scorso. Altro biopic.
    9. Film USA anni ’60, uno dei molti successi di una famosissima attrice americana.

  3. Non so se sono ancora in tempo. tanto sono assolutamente fuori concorso, forse forse ne posso azzeccare ben due!
    1.casanova 70 (aiutata da un cliente cinefilo!)
    6.behind the candelabra

    e basta, non so niente altro! questa settimana beatrina poverella.

  4. Valentina has just sent me an email with her answers. Here they are.

    Little ideas and very confused. Thanks to your clues something came up:
    1. Casanova 70 (before your hint I would have sworn it was ‘How to murder your wife’)
    2. Cape Fear (1962)
    3. Repulsion (I couldn’t remember the name of the movie but the image of La Deneuve with that phone is so vivid in my head)
    6. Behind the Candelabra (thanks to an article in a recent VF)
    7. A Star is born
    8. The doors
    9. Cat on a hot tin roof.

    Share the lova. XOXO

  5. Sono davvero dispiaciuta di non aver partecipato ma questo weekend è stato molto impegnativo per me, non sono riuscita a concentrarmi. Ad ogni modo avrei riconosciuto Casanova e Charade : (
