Pensavo lo avesse visto questo film.

English Translation

I thought you’d seen this movie.

I’m wondering if this should be “I thought he had seen this film” unless the “lo” (it) is for emphasis, and the phrase is Formal.

Thanks for any help… Confused of ClozeM

Hi @Floria7, I think it can be he/she/you (formal), depending on context. The surprising thing for me is the “lo”, which I suppose is a colloquial phenomenon.

Hi @morbrorper indeed. I also wondered if this lo was in fact an “io” slipped in for emphasis but printed out as lo.

Non ti preoccupare, credo che ora tutto vada bene;-)
