A moving piece of work
11 September 1999 | by id247See all my reviews

Italian cinema has a reputation of unearthing quality films and exciting new filmmakers, and this is no exception.

Campiotti is a talent to watch out for with this deeply moving film, which touches on family relationships, the themes of revenge and reconciliation, and so much more, in this, a wonderfully multi-layered film, with resonant characters, one of the few films to reduce this hardened viewer to tears.
