A little over ten years ago, the first in the current series of darker, grittier, more “realistic” (read: less fun) James Bond films starring Daniel Craig was released. Most of you will remember Casino Royale.
Now, the thing is, I actually really rather liked that first film. (I also quite liked the one after it, which simply shows that while my taste in music is unquestionably SUPERB, my taste in films is probably a bit less so.)
A big part of the reason why I liked that first film had to do with the appearance of a woman who was credited as “Solange Dimitrios”, and who was played by a certain Italian actress by the name of Caterina Murino.
This is what she looked like in that film:
I pretty much stopped paying attention to the movie itself for a few minutes after I saw her, because I couldn’t hear the dialogue over the sound of my jaw hitting the floor.
Turns out, she’s actually managed to keep (most of) her looks in the ten years since. And, as the title of this post implies, it’s her smile that keeps her radiant and lovely.
Her amazing figure doesn’t hurt either.
