"Scent of a Woman" Was Perfect Except for the Ferrari


"The last time I was here was with a G-2 from Brussels. Had a Ferrari. Every day I held the door open for the fucker, never even offered me a ride. Well, fuck him. He's dead and I'm blind."

Just finished watching "Scent of a Woman" for what was surely not the last time (Hoo-ah!). It’s a guarantee that this movie will continue to be watched over and over again. It’s just that incredible and enjoyable. And if you haven’t seen it before, stop what you’re doing now and go watch. There’s no need to remind anyone, or give anything away to those who haven’t, as to why the film is so special. In a nutshell, it’s got everything guys want in a film, and everything women crave in a leading actor. It stars Al Pacino, after all.

He also happened to have won an Oscar for Best Actor for his performance. With memorable scenes of Tango dancing, as well as some of the best monologues about valuable life lessons ever captured on camera, the film was just about perfect. Only one thing could have been better: the Ferrari.

The two lead characters take a 1989 Ferrari Mondial t Cabriolet out for a spin, but why that model? The film was made in 1992, and there were some far better Ferraris out at that time. They included the F40, 348, and the Testarossa. Heck, even the 412 may have been a better choice for Colonel Slade and Charlie. So why was the Mondial t used? Likely because Ferrari wanted to sell more of them, and having it featured in an Al Pacino film was a golden opportunity. It was supposedly the most "practical" model at the time. But still, Colonel Slade and Charlie should have been cruising around the back streets of New York City in a Testarossa or F40. A timeless movie deserves to have a classic Ferrari.
