Agis, has released the Box Office figures up to the 8th of June 2011, I am surprised but delighted to see the top two films are Italian, I expected an American Bockbuster to have come in first. Whoop, Whoop I think that calls for some kind of celebration………..cassata with a small glass of Vino Santo
