He experiences three things on the same day, beginning of war, getting a bike and sees the arrival of Malèna in town. Through his eyes, we see the curse of beauty and loneliness of Malena, whose husband is presumed to be dead, and through his soul we see his love for her.
Plot: On the day in 1940 that Italy enters the war, two things happen to the 12-year-old Renato: he gets his first bike, and he gets his first look at Malèna. She is a beautiful, silent outsider who’s moved to this Sicilian town to be with her husband, Nico. He promptly goes off to war, leaving her to the lustful eyes of the men and the sharp tongues of the women. During the next few years, as Renato grows toward manhood, he watches Malèna suffer and prove her mettle. He sees her loneliness, then grief when Nico is reported dead, the effects of slander on her relationship with her father, her poverty and search for work, and final humiliations. Will Renato learn courage from Malèna and stand up for her?

Beautiful and sad film
I do not remember who, but some critic, complained about not knowing what Malena thought and not being able to see her act and speak more in a movie…
I am sure all of us, especially in our childhoods, were once so deeply infatuated by another human being, that they were as sacred and as untouchable to us as Da Vinci’s Giaconda.
That is why Malena is portrayed as a work of art who always looks down, burdened by her beauty. We can only suspect what she feels and we can enjoy the sight of her sad gorgeous face.
And absolutely no words are necessary!
This film compliments the saying: BE BORN HAPPY RATHER THAN BEAUTIFUL
I do agree that Monica Belucci, who I consider to be the most beautiful actress alive and one of the most enchanting beauties in the world, was perfect for this part!
More than just Monica.
On the face of it, this movie is about a young boy’s fantasies as he falls in love with the image of an older woman. I say ‘image’ because he doesn’t know her at all to begin with, but as he watches, her increasingly sad truth is seen through his eyes.
It’s also about Sicily during the war, but deeper than that, to me, it seems to be about the mob mind, jealousy and hatred and about how people tend to become what is expected of them, or don’t.
Monica Bellucci is undeniably among the sexiest women alive and her near wordless performance is mesmerising. My only criticism is the somewhat stereotypical way that the ‘men’ are portrayed. Perhaps there’s some truth that we are all driven from an area below the waist, but I’d like to think it’s not true of all of us.
