    Sad. For classical musicians reading this, if you haven’t listened to Miguel Bose please try him out. He is fantastic. And he also starred in Almodovars film Tacones Lejanos

  • David Boxwell says:

    She was one of the most ravishing women to ever appear on screen. See her Antonioni’s first feature film “Cronaca di un Amore”.

  • Cubs Fan says:

    Sorry to hear this. Just last night, being homebound thanks to the virus, I was watching Death of a Cyclist. What a fine actress. RIP.

  • Jeffrey Biegel says:

    This is terribly sad. We pray for her surviving family and will remember her legacy for many years to come.
