stark, gritty peek at life in italy during wartime.
27 June 2002 | by (brownsville, texas) – See all my reviews

fascinating look at fascist italy and the people who carved out a life under mussolini. street scenes and lifestyle glimpses alone are worth watching. combine this with a masterful plot and premier acting and you get a film that you will want to watch again . .. and maybe again.
