The same scene without Anita Ekberg in it but Elsa instead. WithoutMarcello Mastroiani but with that love that took so long to arrive.Alfredo is a bit younger than Elsa and was always a good man who did everythinghe was supossed to do. After losing his wife, he feels disturbed and confusedand his daughter decides that it would be best if he moved into a smallerapartment where he’ll meet Elsa. From that moment on, everything changes.Elsa bursts into his life like a whirlwind, determined to teach him that thetime he has left to live - be it more or less - is precious and that he shouldenjoy it as he pleases. Fred surrenders to Elsa’s frenzy, to her youth, to herboldness, to her beautiful madness. And this is how Alfredo (or Fred, as Elsacalls him), learns how to live.
