If I had to choose a movie that is relatable to me, I’d choose the movie ‘Dear Diary’ 1993 by Nanni Moretti.

I saw the movie more than ten years ago on TV when I was zapping through the channels, on a sleepless night.

Its warm settings, intimate language, and relatable main character taught me a lot about writing and the fine balance between comedy and drama.

I’ve been carrying this sentence from the movie with me since then:

“Dear Diary; I’m only happy by the sea while I’m traveling between an island that I’ve just left and another one that I still have to reach.”
