They have thrown you out. They don't want you back because you are an idiot. You have been nothing but trouble since the day you got there - since the day you were born! What have you done this time? Tell me. Answer!
I broke a statue.
For breaking a little statue they throw you out like a dog?
It wasn't little, it was big.

Well-acted by the lead characters. It's very touching in its simplicity and message . It's a perfectly done, you would want to see it over and over.Great cinematography that captures a believable atmosphere of the era. Maximillian Schell was perfect in his portrayal of this humble saint ,exuded innocence and charm . Lea Padovani who played Giuseppe's mother and Gobbo(Carlo Croccolo) are unforgettable characters that provided some of the movie's humor . And how can I forget the Antagonist ,Don Raspi (Ricardo Montalban) whose envy was never a hurdle to Giuseppe . its so good . so original . Just plain good! I wish people made more movies like this . Good movies is like a dying art .
