saint or sinner?

In the same vein as Jay Leno's perennial question "straight or gay" (lest it is "gay or straight" - who cares in this P.C. world anymore - eh? It is a funny segment on Leno's show) - let us thoroughly analyze now the qualities and the faults of many an illuminary... shall we? Ok? Good! ~ NOTA BENE: perhaps because of the subject matter, this blog is neither perfect with IE, nor with Firefox!

Eleonora Pimentel Fonseca

Maria De Medeiros offers an incredible perfomance as the aristocratic revolutionary Eleonora Pimentel Fonseca, who became a heroine in the short lived 1799 Neapolitan Republic. Her story is brilliantly told and originally directed by Italian director Antonietta De Lillo.
''Remains of the Day'' was good -
"The Remains Of Nothing" (Il resto di niente) is mucho better!



I guess I'll have to ask you to view the clip; and if the clip is not available anymore, SEE THE FILM and do some research on my *surefire ancestor* here (ahem, ahem) and then make the call -
Eleonora Pimentel - was she a saint...
or just another Marie-Antoinette? *lol*
