A sad story, but true
3 August 2000 | by (Treviso,Italy) – See all my reviews

Probably I'll be the only person who comments this old film by Mario Bonnard, but this is the only italian film which tells something about the history of Italian people who lived in Istria before World war. Nobody told the truth about the ethnic cleansing made by the Yugoslavian Communists guided by Marshall Tito against innocent Italians; for this reason this film is a real historical document. It shows some real images of the big italian exodus from Pola and it tells the story of a married couple who decide to stay in Pola, even if it won't be no more Italian. The character of the priest, of Silvana and also of the yugoslavian girl are such real people; in some parts, the film seems taken from real life. This film should be showed in many Italian schools in order to remember the biggest tragedy Italy has ever lived. But here in my country this is an unpleasant truth.
