Ermanno Olmi's follow-up to The Tree of Wooden Clogs is a vast and irreverent epic shadowing a village of Tuscan peasants who re-enact the biblical Journey of the Magi. 

Olmi evokes something of Pier Paolo Pasolini's The Gospel of St. Matthew in a fascinating attempt to find the spiritual or religious sublime in the "authentic" faces of his cast comprised entirely of non-actors. 

A great favourite of Australian film critic John Flaus.
