Amongst the most fondly remembered of the Tavianis’ films, this winner of the Grand Jury Prize at the Cannes Film Festival, recounting the dangerous trek of a group of Tuscan villagers trying to reach American forces during the final stages of the war in Italy, is a poetic, beautifully shot, fantastical and tragi-comic masterpiece. This mix of melodrama, deep-veined history, dramatic and magical realism presents a heightened portrayal of the memories, traumas and experiences of war and occupation. Starring Omero Antonutti (Padre Padrone, El sur) and Margarita Lozano.
