About Me

Hello there! I'm so glad you stopped by. 

I'm Sonia, a 26-year-young Italian girl with glasses. I have an unhealthy obsession for tea and coffee. I'm a foodie and an avid bookworm, the kind who loves sniffing books. I love yoga for the sense of calmness, and working out for the energetic kick. I also love taking walks in nature, music — not a single day goes by without me putting on my earbuds to listen what suits my mood—, travelling — although I don't do it very often because I'm not brave enough to travel alone —, taking photos, and watching my favourite football teams, Bayern M√ľnchen and Germany's national team. And there's nothing more appealing to me than binge-watching a new TV series. 

And of course I LOVE watching films. Whether it was horrors when I was in my pre-teens, romantic comedies in my teens, or brainless action flick before turning twenty, I've always enjoyed watching films. And since writing also is something I've always loved, I decided to combine the two passions and A Film A Day was born, a blog where I share my opinions on films and occasionally on TV series.

Why the name? I've always been the kind of person who dives into new hobbies, invests plenty of time in them at first but eventually gets bored and completely forgets about them. Hence my goal of posting a review every day for at least 365 days, to prove everyone, especially myself, that I'm capable of committing if I want to. Turns out I was right as I managed to post a new review for 1661 days, which by the way is a palindrome number as the math geek in me can't help but point out. How amazing is that?!


  1. You're film a day project is a good excerise for you. You found a trait you wanted to chance or prove to yourself it's not you, so you chose that project. I think you'll make it with style.

  2. Could I suggest some titles you won't find many reviews about?
    One Day In Europe
    Last Stop 174
    I Served The King of England
    Men In Hope
    The Return (2003 russian)
    Die Welle

    I wathched some surprisingly good movies lately (Like The Little Death, Young People Fucking, Tropa de Elite 1 & 2) but when you look for more you don't find many people talking about them.

  3. Write about Indian films also.

    1. Do you have any suggestion?

  4. Sonia:

    Your site is nicely arranged and your film reviews are honest and helpful. Thanks much for setting out on the journey.

    I also bore easily. It's a blessing and a curse.

    Best of luck,


  5. No joke, we both have a lot of the same fave directors, actors and actresses! I'm obsessed with Michael Fassbender and especially when he partners with Steve McQueen.

    BTW, I love your food blog too!

    1. Thanks, Rachel! I also love when Fassbender and McQueen work together, it's like the best thing ever! And expect to see a very long piece on Michael Fassbender for his 40th birthday.

    2. Wait, are they doing another project together right now?

  6. Wow! Nice to know about you. Even, I too share same interests as you except that in our part of the world it's "Cricket" which is famous unlike soccer. I would love to read more and more reviews from you.

    With Love & Respect,
