La Stazione -The Station (Margherita Buy).avi
I saw this movie many many years ago now as a late night movie on the national Canadian Television Broadcasting network. It left a lasting impression on me, however i have not seen it anywhere since. It is controversial, to say the least.
The movie is about the sweetest, dearest woman in the entire world (Margherita Buy) coming into contact with the wrong men for her sort of personality and ways of being.
In the one case, there is her mate who is handling her as physical property that can be roughed up as a way of giving a sort of a hug. many abusive men mask their abuse towards women by pretending "they care so much, they just want to beat it into them". Such men lack a real human sensibility, and are in fact not aware that they are not showing manhood or any kind of sane virility. they are in fact a cowardly sort of nuisance and a blight amidst nicer souls than they are made of in this respect.
Most Italian men actually venerate women dearly. The position of the "mother figure; essentially casts Italian society as matriarchal just from this reality. Men there would die to protect their mothers without a moments thought. And no, that is not as universally completely a fact of life to the poun of being something that requires not a moment of thought as there are differences in mores and strengths of cultural teachings and actual bonds between human beings everywhere they are. It is though at some point considered by universal human conscienceness as being just a sane part of what "normal idealism" would have to recognize as altogether legitimate and in fact natural.
As for my own take on the movie, I want to pint out what most people wont. that the person who is just as much a culrpit in the movie to the point of being in some fundamental way even more offensive to humane sensibilitiy is the
beauracratic "ticket clerk' n the movie who steals a kiss he has not earned and does not deserve. he has not protected a woman in needs of a true man, a real gentleman, he has instead only gotten himself exceited at the though that his car might be involved in the mayhem and this no doubt is his personal property requiring indignation he has not shown at the moment of truth, and instead only when this other inane factor becomes a reality to him. as such I put it to you he is in fact the ultimate of what we call a "cad".
I'm not faulting him just for lacking physical courage. i do so simply because he appears unemotional and unmoved by what is "violence towards good women - the very best of women in fact". The woman in question can only be described as "an angle" in the truest sense of her spirit as they don't make them any better than this anywhere on the planet! Yet there is no shock, horror or indignation at her treatment by the characters involved. this kind of desensitization is criminally offensive on the part of both and perhaps it is right that this movie jas all but disappeared. On the other hand it requires a public airing and discussion so all can see what is shown for what it is. Real barbarism at play by the inane towards those that are the best of gods gift to us all. in this respect we must all speak out wherever we see this anywhere in our world.
That said, it pales by comparison to the insanely cruel and brutal beating taken by a demonic character in "Rob Roy" who after assaulting her in the abdomen area continues his incursions from a rear attack that is to follow the prelude. Yet we see this act of incredulous cowardice and bestiality in the presence of an entire army of men who re unmoved to act. as such that is to me the ultimate portrayal of what i speak of here. You will find the actions in La Stazione universally condemned by mankind. it takes a special genius to see the real insanity of such a mindset much more so depicted in "Rob Roy" by those indicating they cant tell one victim from another (in describing women versus men anatomically such as it is, at the opening of the movie, employing what is gutter language in the use of the word "ass").
What a sad world it is that we are a part of indeed. discussion can only lead to better open eyes on the matter and more protection for dear dear Margherita (Ms. buy) in our world.
This movie is of a small file size, one and a half hour in length. it is only VCR quality and sometimes seems dubbed as some audio correction had to be made for the recording process. It is quite suitable for our purposes here however and mostly you'll appreciate it i think just as much as anything else we offer in good conscience.
