"Try something new each day"

This story is a sad one:

An 82-year-old Argentine woman who attracted media attention last month when she married a 24-year-old man has died as a result of heart problems.

Adelfa Volpes was admitted to hospital soon after she and her new husband, Reinaldo Waveqche, returned from their honeymoon in Brazil.


I hope they had a chance to consummate their relationship. Then again, maybe that's what finished her off.

Anyway, as a tribute, here is a trailer for the greatest love story ever filmed - a tale of illicit love blossoming between a young man and a woman sixty years his senior - which I guess Reinaldo and Adelfa would have loved too: Harold and Maude.



Worth seeking out on DVD, if only for the terrific Cat Stevens soundtrack.

Great film. Truly terrible trailer, though.

Not a bad way to go though.
